Herschel Walker $600 (no win bonus) - I'd be willing to bet that $600 is the minimum you're allowed to pay a pro fighter. I mean, Herschel don't need th cheddar, prolly woulda fought for free if they let him.
Wes Sims $25,000 - Wow, I would have agreed to a fight in 10 days if they paid me 25 grand for it!!

Herschel donated his purse to a charity.. I didn't realize it would be so small though, especially considering how many fans tuned in to see him. Expected Bobby Lashley to make a little more too.

So what the heck then...I wonder what happened to have him getting just 600 bucks? Is he really an mma fighter, licensed and legal or was this just for charity?

Well then he's an idiot.You'd think even if it was for charity he'd hold out for more money.

perhaps they didn't want to disclose the amount Herschel was getting and giving to charity and the lowest they can claim is 600. so they pay him that and donate the rest. nopt sure

They probably did that with Herschel for tax purposes if he was just going to donate the money to charity. If they were to actually pay his entire purse out to him he would have to pay taxes on it regardless if he was donating it or not. The $600 was probably either a minimum that they are required pay by the commission, or they were just paying him to cover per diem for his time spent in Miami.

Regardless, these payouts are pathetic.

I don't know....that whole 600 dollar thing seems a little suspicious to me.
