He has money BECAUSE he does commercials, works with sponsors, and you know, is bankrolled by the UFC with his cush office gig. He's been doing them for years. Get real man, people don't just go and do commercials because they need money. They WANT money. You NEVER have enough.
Billionaires probably have enough but I agree with the rest. He isn't working because he is desperate for cash. He isn't desperate for cash because he continues to bring in income. Its how he stays in the more than financially comfortable range

I think the catch is: nobody wants to be acting in a commercial as a character because no one knows who they are - which I've seen happen recently and felt kinda sorry for the actress.

That's the only exception that I can see that would make commercials "bad" but even in that case, apparently the commercial is good because at least they can get some kind of paying gig.
