Sorry to hear that, man. That sounds awful. Hopefully things won't come to that 5 years down the road for you.

Or maybe it does. It could be that someone was just talking about Jone's total wealth. Like 'I'm sitting on a 10 million coal mine'.

Yeah but all that HGH and TRT and weed gets expensive. Plus Rogan has been in show business much longer and diversified with Fear Factor and his "comedy" shows.

Yea because boxing in general really supports their fighters... Or not and only the very top guys actually make anything.

Lol that is nothing for the #1 p4p fighter in the world. As others have said boxing's p4p king makes way more than that for one fight. Jones should definitely pull a Diaz when his contract is up.

I'm not a fan of Jon's but he is arguably the face of the sport and p4p king. The fact that he doesn't make more shows where MMA is at as far as financial opportunities. 10 million is amazing money but he went through murderers row and suffered brain trauma along the way. He had and is having an amazing run which may never be seen again and he is making less money than tons of relatively mediocre pro soccer, NBA, NFL and golf players.

Yeah it does suck but there are a lot worse injustices in the world than an athlete paid less that he deserves. Silver lining is that he can beat up most of those other athletes even if they make more money than him.

I think R3 is the face of MMA right now. Kinda sad I know.
