Machida: I felt like a hitman getting money from the boss after beating Tito Ortiz
UFC President Dana White recently said he gave Lyoto Machida a bonus for beating Tito Ortiz. Machida confirmed the story. He also revealed more details to MMMFighting,
“He really did that. I felt like a hitman getting money from the boss, but it was cool.”
However, he refused to reveal how much he got.
“I won’t tell you how much he paid me. But it was good money. White said I was dominating the fight and out of a sudden Ortiz got me on that triangle, he said 'Shit, I can't believe it.' He went crazy, but then I got out of it. So I guess he gave me a bonus because he was scared of that triangle“, Machida said laughingly.
