Pretty sure he never saw any of the supposed six figures. The press release invented that number when saying he would get a percentage of sales. Since there was never a shoe, his percentage was zero.

"Dake's yearly compensation will likely garner him well over six figures per year as Lutte is the first company in the history of the sport of wrestling to pay an athlete a percentage of sales in line with the rates received by athletes in other major professional sports in the United States."

Turns out, CF won against ASICS, and has retained legal rights to market the Jordan Burroughs name. They still use his likeliness in advertisements, interviews, and still sell his gear, albeit at a discount (presumably to get rid of existing gear). There is no more Kyle Dake gear on the CF site, BUT on Kyle Dake's official site, the merchandise he sells still has the CF logo (http://www.xcelonlinestore.com/collecti ... erchandise).

pretty sure when cf was called out for not paying Herbert they were tweeting and may have even said in interviews that they were guaranteeing dake six figures a year

I can't comment on any tweets, but the official press release seems to use some creative accounting. They said he would be paid six figures as a percentage of sales, but never disclose either the percentage or what level of sales would need to be reached to get Dake to that sort of payout.

 

Also, this is happening with those clowns over on Twitter.

That's interesting.. they're using the same namesake they were gonna give Kyle Dake's shoe for Daniel Cormier's. Also, what did Mike throwing out the legal opinion have to do with the conversation? Complete red herring.

This guy is such a clown and his brand is such a joke that it makes you question the character of all those associated with him/CF. I'd love to know his net worth. How much has he profited over blatantly screwing over athletes?
