I doubt it was as much about the "fun" as it was about the money. I may be wrong though.
Didn't you read the article? He didn't share in any of the winnings.
About the "Fun"
I think this is actually what a good portion of it was about. These guys get a rush out of this that they can only get doing something like that or playing ball. If you have never gambled before than you know the rush of playing craps, poker, watching football etc. It is no excuse, but I do think this was more of a part than people think.
He is actually correct in the fact that he never got a personal profit from the winnings. What he did was take the money his dogs one and put it right back into the organization to feed, house, and train the dogs. Technically he didn't make the money off the fighting, he put it into his operation.
