Every other athlete's pay is easily found, yet MMA fighters pay is secret information locked away deep inside the Kremlin. That, or the back room bonuses are bullshit.

Boxing is too refined. The hands in the other arts are too sloppy. Their defense is too sloppy and their kicks don't make up for it. Boxing also breeds better athletes. Athletically, they are on another level. The talent pool is so much bigger in boxing.

I think Mayweather would destroy any Muay Thai fighter or any kickboxer in his weight class in a striking only match. Let Mayweather watch some videos of his opponent and it will be a wrap.
You are trolling right !?

You are fucking crazy. You could fly Floyd Mayweather to Thailand and let him train for as long as he wants to and he'd still get crushed by a top Muay Thai fighter. Floyd wins in boxing, Thai boxer wins in Muay Thai.

To the last two posters, he said in a striking only match. He didn't say they would win at Muay Thai.

Same for boxing.

Even Rampage makes more than a million a fight we recently found out. GSP is rumored to make between 2.5 and 5 million per fight.
Recently found out? You're assuming a man who always lies in public isn't lying in public this time? How many times now has Dana said some stupid shit in public that hasn't turned out to be remotely true? Remember when he said Nike were dropping Manny for Jon Jones? MMA fans and the media aren't capable of thinking for themselves. Every time Dana says something the lot of them take it as fact without even digging into it. Just like when Dana said Nike were dropping Manny you can practically here the interviewer fapping off camera "Huh!? Oh really WOOOOWIW Mr White."

Even then he says nothing about where the 15 million came from? He was in that A-Team movie, is Dana trying to take credit for that the same way he tries take credit for sponsorship money?

Quote:
Not Mayweather and Pacquiao numbers, but better than just about everyone else and certainly better than Kessler.
Kessler consistently makes over a million as a purse alone. I don't think there has ever been a UFC fighter who has made that much just as purse. After that he earns TV rights and sponsorship money.

I can't really remember what it was but I think Kessler made a 1.8 million purse fighting Brian Magee (800k purse) in Denmark. Taking that alone and comparing it to what you say about GSP (UFC's biggest draw and most important fighter) earning a RUMOURED 5 million when all is added up, we see Kessler is actually making almost half up front than what GSP makes in total. So yes, it would appear Kessler does make more than GSP.

Muay Thai is like 99% striking. You have some clinches and throws but they don't really grapple.

How about if we just go with K-1 rules then? Muay Thai fighter still wins.

Striking meaning not kicking was what I assumed he meant.

Striking doesn't mean not kicking though. Not kicking would mean a boxing match. In a stand up striking match it would look a lot like this:
