Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen 2: It's Not About the Money

For those MMA fans out there, you know that tomorrow is a big night! How do you think it's going down? According to the California State Athletic Commission, the fight purses earned by these two athletes in their first encounter totalled $415,000. Anderson Silva walked away with the lion's share as the Middleweight Champion earning a total of $320,000. ($200,000 in base pay and an added $60,000 for Fight of the Night and yet another $60,000 for Submission of the Night) Sonnen didn't do too badly for himself with a $95,000 payday, but as the second half of the Fight of the Night duo, his base was only $35,000. Given how close the first bout in Oakland, CA was, it should be interesting to see if Chael's management was able to get him a better deal for the rematch. [polldaddy poll=6371742]
