    Dana recently boasts UFC women can make as much as men vs other sports where guess he suggests bigger disparity. Maybe to a certain extent but hardly a good comparison especially considering most men don’t make much either.

    Guessing from my casual observation Women do have less sports earning options then men but there is one sport, well sort of a sport, figure skating Women tend to make more $ via sponsorship.

    What sports can Women make high $?

    Tennis, Golf (cringe calling it a sport but they do get paid well), can’t think of many others, track but as Dana mentions much less than men, so MMA could be among the higher options. Ironic since not to long ago Dans scoffed at WMMA potential but he did change as a proponent and can take credit now.

    RIZIN also giving women a boost.

    But also perhaps e-sports, 'cause all the fans are virgins.

    Well MMA men are paid peanuts for the most part. Not really tough to match that and make it more "equal"...

    Real Madrid paid over 500 million euros for Ronaldo and made that back in shirt sales in like a week. Let´s see any woman generate that kind of revenue.

    For the most part female elites are on the level of highschoolers/College freshmen. That´s just not going to generate the same kind of sponsors or audience numbers.

    So ehhh synchronized swimming?

    I think beach volleyball is the most popular female sport. It could be speculated that it's also one of the best paid.

    Lol at cringing at golf. I don't necessarily enjoy watching or playing it, but it is pretty legit on a technical level.

    The ladies can earn the money men make in the UFC which is a good thing in my view. Some might argue that the ladies alone wouldn't draw, some might argue that the company makes money by throwing in WMMA fights to stretch the cards. I say the ladies have to make ends meet, too.

    If posting ass pics on Instagram is considered a sport, then the majority of The WMMA roster are true athletes. Unfortunately in some cases.

    They love it. Women love selling tupperware. Or buying it, doesn't matter to them.

    I would guess that the sports in which women make as much as men are the ones based primarily on aestetics. Such as figure skating, dancing and the likes (not that I can think of many).
