Default Chael talks about his paycheck from the Babalu fight



Quote:
Shortly after losing my job in 2008, I remember thinking the economy was going to get worse before it got better. Every week I filed for unemployment and survived primarily on a diet of Honey Nut Cheerios and whichever flavor Hot Pockets were on sale that week at CVS. I actually never cashed my 2009 economic stimulus check. Although Obama was generous enough to offer me an entire dollar with which to stimulate the economy, the irony of paying thousands of dollars in federal and state taxes resulting in a $1.00 stimulus check seemed like it would provide more humorous value displayed in my foyer than in my wallet. Ultimately, it makes for an excellent discussion whenever a guest sees it, and it will remain Scotch-taped to my wall until enough noise complaints lead to my eviction. Chael Sonnen knows exactly what that feels like. In fact, in this MMA 30 he wants to tell you all about the $100 check he earned for fighting Babalu in his first fight in the UFC; a check thatís still magnetically affixed to his refrigerator.

So much for Lorenzo's claim of $6000 + $6000 (win bonus) for the undercard fighters.

You're just being snarky & not actually trying to be serious, right? I mean, this was back in '05, just after TUF 1, before the UFC got profitable. Also, those 6&6 numbers are an indisputable fact as part of public record.

Guess I was thinking 2008. Too many numbers in the article I guess. Pretty sad considering I was a math major, lol

The writer of the article is not very good so I can see why you thought 2008

Yeah, at MiddleEasy.com, the first half of the article is typically some random "highlight" from their life which then awkwardl segways into the actual topic at hand.
