Quote of the Day: Guy Mezger Talks Tito Ortiz, Money

"Tito has done a very good job creating a 'Brand' out of himself. He should get paid good money. He was important to the resurgence of the UFC. What that number is the real question. If the UFC is unwilling to pay what Tito wants then he should pursue some of promotion (like he is).

Ken and I were paid extremely well for what the market was available. It is not the same as it was then as to what is it is today. That would be like Babe Ruth complaining about what ball players get paid today.

The fight business is a tough one inside and outside of the ring. Most guys will not be able to sustain themselves by being a fighter. Sad, but the truth."
