    24 hours out of UFC 234, Israel Adesanya thought he was competing in the co-main eventof the Melbourne card. UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker was going to make the big money in the headliner, considering he has pay-per-view points in his contract, as most champions due.

    Then just like that, Whittaker’s fight with Kelvin Gastelum was off due to a hernia. Adesanya’s bout with Anderson Silva was on top now.

    So after Adesanya’s big win, he showed up at the post-fight press conference and had a pretty valid financial question - if Whittaker didn’t fight, who gets that money? Does the UFC keep it?

    “The pay-per-view points, where do they…

    If you didn't get them written into your bout agreement BEFORE your fight, then they're not going to you, goof

    Exactly. How does any manager worth his salt not negotiate this deal prior to the fight? It's very simple...."pay my guy PPV points or cancel another main event"

    I seriously doubt this event sold enough PPVs to trigger any bonus money.

    Fighting Anderson Silva as the co-main should mean you're getting points.

    Where are rhose extra points though?

    Fill that bag up.

    I doubt there was any time for that being that it was last minute and all...

    The UFC should do the right thing though.

    That’s the risk some of these guys and girls are going to have to take, if they truly want the change that they talk about so often.

    It's the UFCs goddamn right to retain that money.

    It should be an example in business or PR study books, how asinine the UFC and especially Dana has behaved and comunicated (Dana has been a prick in interviews more so in the past, around 2012-15 maybe?) that now, automatically, people always categorically take side against them.

    Thank god nobody (yet) wrote that Dana will buy snow for his house with the money...

    Did something change with the fight that i don't know about?

    It was still a 3 round fight. Same opponent. The media obligations didn't change.

    The only difference is that they fought last instead of second to last.

    It may be nice to tip them out a bit extra but in this instance i really don't see a reason to give them any kind of PPV points that wasn't already in their contract.

    The PPV points go to people who finish fights against guys 5 years past their prime, Israel.

    Whoever gets PPV points on this card is going to owe Dana money.

    The hespect that Israel has for Anderson this is as clean as it gets.....usually it ends up like Pat Barry and crocop.

    That's what's suposed to happen when the guard changes. Clean and decisive. What happened on Saturday is the MMA equivalent of a count out dq.
