I want to continue to build into my retirement for me and my family, that’s very important. I also want to give where I can to people who take care of me and have helped me earn the $1 million — people who supported me when I had negative in my bank account, but knew that I had potential. But overall, really for me it’s not about the money. It’s about growing my legacy and becoming a two-time PFL Champion.”Guilty purchase: “I think I already made my guilty purchase last time around when I bought a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and another Dodge Grand Cherokee Hellcat. I think I have enough toys for now.”Where the bulk of the money would go toward: “I would say the bulk would go into investment accounts and retirement accounts. I just want my money to continue to grow for me and that has been a key learning experience for me.

I’m not doing this when I’m 40!”Vinny Magalhaes, 2018 light heavyweight runner-pOn what he’d do with $1 million: “I’ll likely invest in a house and save the rest. I know I could do a bit more, but there’s nothing at the moment that I need that I feel like I’d only be able to achieve after winning the championship.”Guilty purchase: “Since I’m a bit of a sneakerhead, I’d probably buy some sneakers that I’ve been flirting with, but I’d be killed by my wife if I bought them now!”Where the bulk of the money would go toward: “Save some, and then send a decent chunk to my uncle … his name is Sam.”Chris Wade, 2018 lightweight semifinalistOn what he’d do with $1 million: “Use it to become loaded. You gotta have money to make money.”Guilty purchase: “I’m going to buy a dope boat for Long Island summers to go with the jet skis.”Where the bulk of the money would go toward: “To the IRS.
