Not what I am saying.

I am saying they will get into it for the big bucks, but before then they need to survive on at least some sort of wage.

The stability of income offer that Hendricks got (earn a wage while training, abut then give away a large percentage of winnings) is the only reason he went into MMA.


When faced with two career options, A they could have a huge pay off in 3 years but near nothig inbetween or B one that will draw decent income and then a decent pay off, many people will choose B.
