CM Punk Got Paid $500,000 To Get Battered By Mickey Gall For 2 Minutes

Easy money.

As everyone saw on Saturday night, CM Punk stepped into the Octagon, got dominated for 2 minutes, put in a rear naked choke and submitted. Not even a dramatic submission either, just a casual “yeah I’ve had enough” kind of tap.

After the fight a lot of people were bigging CM Punk up for being brave enough to have a UFC fight in the first place, and that was fair enough, until you realise what the guy got paid at the end of it:

$500,000 to get beaten up by Mickey Gall for 134 seconds. Only $100,000k less than what the guy who won the heavyweight title got two fights later. I mean it’s pretty easy to see where he got the balls to do MMA from if he’s getting paid half a million whether he wins or loses. In fact what’s Mickey Gall up to now? I’ll get in the Octagon with him for $500,000 no problem.

Here’s what everyone else made if you’re interested:

Miocic $600,000 def. Overeem $800,000

Werdum $375,000 ($250,000 + $125,000*) def. Browne $120,000

Gall $30,000 ($15,000 + $15,000*) def. CM Punk $500,000

Rivera $48,000 ($24,000 + $24,000*) def. Faber $160,000

Andrade $46,000 ($23,000 + $23,000*) def. Calderwood $25,000
