Payout Perspective:

It looks like Tito’s Bellator contract had him making $300,000 per fight if you look back at his other fights with the organization. His last fight in the UFC he earned $250,000. Unfortunately for Christian Gonzalez, he missed weight and had to forfeit a portion of his purse. He was one of the lowest paid fighters on the card which makes it worse. Notably, a pattern of top of the card Bellator fighters with no win bonus and others on the mid-card making a win bonus which is half their show money.
The fighters he's beaten aren't even household names in their own household.

"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god."
