Dan Hardy has revealed the purse he received for fighting Georges St-Pierre for the UFC welterweight title in 2010.
‘The Outlaw’ came up short against one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time, like many other dropping a wide decision (50-43, 50-44, 50-45.)
Despite facing one of the top fighters he only earnt $24,000 for his title fight against GSP.
But staggeringly he only walked away with a measly $5,400 after expenses and tax deductions.
Speaking in an interview with The British Entrepreneur he said:
“I mean as an idea, and I was never any good at negotiating contracts. I never asked for more money. Because I just wasn’t really interested in it and that was my mistake at the time I think.
“So I fought GSP for twenty-four thousand dollars. So the money I put in my bank account after that fight had happened was five thousand four hundred dollars. And that was a world title fight from 10-11 years ago.”
Hardy also claimed that GSP made a whopping $4 million to $5 million.
The Brit added:
“He got four or five million because he was on pay-per-view points, as well as his purse.”
“I mean, you know we’ve had this conversation. I’ve trained with GSP. He spent five times what I got paid on his training camp.”
