Tito Ortiz received a six figure paycheck from Triller, but Anderson Silva got 20% of it after Tito missed the required 195 pound weight limit.
Anderson Silva barely broke a sweat, snatched 20% of Tito's purse, and effortlessly added another monster KO to his highlight reel at age 46. The legend living his best life right now. You love to see it. #TrillerFightClub

The ‘Tribute to the Kings’ event headlined by MMA legend Anderson Silva and former WBC middleweight titleholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. took place on Saturday, June 19, at Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico. It was promoted by Borizteca Boxing and Toscano Promotions and produced by Global Sports Streaming. As revealed by reports, it seems the promoters of the event wanted to get UFC megastars, Nate and Nick Diaz, to compete in boxing matches at the event as well. However, while Nate Diaz was definitely interested in competing at the event, it seems the UFC prevented him from doing so. Anderson Silva also exposed UFC President Dana White as a fraud recently.
Tito Ortiz faced off against Anderson Silva at Triller boxing on September 11th and in a very shocking conclusion, was decimated by Silva in 81 seconds via knockout in the first round.
After the fight, Ortiz spoke to Fight Hub TV and revealed his thoughts on his loss.
“I never boxed before but it was an opportunity and I loved it, it’s fun, it’s exciting to even get to the point but I’ve never been clipped like that. Even (Chuck) Liddell didn’t clip me that bad. That was a good punch, he caught me with a clean punch.”
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. I will be back,
