Carano pockets $125,000 in loss

How does the MMA justify this? It makes absolutely no sense.
Well Carano is the face of women's MMA so she is the one that brought in the viewers. But was she the champion? I don't know too much about MMA. She was undefeated I believe up until that point. It is kinda like a pro getting upset by an amateur. I still think it is insane. But I am sure they agreed to the sum before the fight, so "Cyborg" knew what her potential winnings would be but I doubt she knew how much Carano was being paid.
It is 125,000 dollars we are talking about! That is more than a years wage for general public.
Carano didn't even make it out of the first round in a five round fight!
Cristiane Santos who won the fight received $25,000 which includes the $5,000 win bonus.
As long as I could "live" and not have major injuries...lol, I could get paid for that!
My favourite football (soccer) team gets paid to lose most weeks.
She got paid 5 times as much as the winner! Talk about crazy.
pretty violent stuff you have been warned
video of the fight
Look at the SI article again further down in the first fight listed under main event, the winner got $2,000 and the loser $70,000. MMA is a sport where you get paid for what you have done in the past, more than for the current fight, tough way to make a living
Yeah I understand that. All I am saying is it is pretty nice to get destroyed in a fight and get paid like that.
Cyborg had a only one career lost which happened to be her first match. So it was the 7-1 Santos (six by knockout) vs 7-0 (3 by knockout) Carano.

I just want to discuss what's going on in my little head right now and hope to hear from those of you more educated on the subject.I qualified to buy a condo in 2004 (six years ago). I paid $6,000 cash for closing. Two years later I refinanced to get into a fixed interest rate of 5.5%...

Would you take money if paid to be a witness in court?If you were a witness to a crime and the district attorney said they would pay you for your testimony would you take the money or would you refuse it.

I know this is going to be a big no, but honestly, I would be motivated to write more hubs and clean up old ones if I got paid 80% instead of 60%. Even 70% would motivate me more. Anyone else feel the same?

Whenever I hear on the news about a lottery that is some ridiculous amount, I think to myself what in the world would I do with all that money. I figured it would be crazy fun to give it away. I would do some serious research to find some people who have lost their jobs, needed...
