A good portion of that money will be gone with fight tickets and lodging, so yeah, it's not plenty IMO

They made their profession from the thing they love. If he wins that's 24K, maybe he's able to fight 3 times a year. Then he still gets sponsor money. I'm guessing he also makes some money with perhaps some seminars and stuff like that. He makes more than a average person, whilst doing something he loves. That's not too shabby imo.

Badly outgrappled by Caceres. It was a close decision only because Kang is much bigger , he got outclassed.

I don't think you understood my comment. 12/12 is better than 6/6 but it's still low. Busan COA is high.
