    "And these guys are getting all the money from the Reebok deal. All the money goes to them. What better of a deal could you cut for the guys? It's an investment in the future of the sport."

    There's a handful that are still OK but the rest have one foot out of the door.

    ts, you did a double multiply in your thread title.

    double what he made in two bouts would be 4X 1 bout. lyoto says 'surpass what he made in 2 bouts'

    his last bout in the ufc he made 20k 'incentive pay'

    meaning one sponsor is paying him more than 40k for one fight.

    The term "UFC caliber fighter" is gone a looong time ago. They are their own bum league.

    You can't leave the NBA or NFL and make more money in another league though.
    Guys who sit on the bench make significantly more than any "star" in another feeder league.

    I mean I can throw actual numbers out to show what I'm talking about.

    The highest paid player in the CFL is Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray. He's played in the league for 17 years. He's probably the biggest star in the CFL.
    He makes $400,000 a year.

    The 2nd string quarterback on the Dallas Cowboys is named Cooper Rush. He's never played a single snap in a regular season game ever. He's been in the league for 1 year. Nobody knows who the hell this guy is. He makes $550,000 a year.

    The Reebok deal is truly one of the worst things the UFC ever did. It really hurt the guys begging for bonuses to pay their rent and bills. And all because Zuffa was planning to sell the UFC and wanted to get every dollar they could before they did. And have no doubt that where's all the real Reebok money went. Their separate "official sponsor" deal with Zuffa, not the bs deal announced publicly for the fighters.

    Anyone could tell you he would be making 5x as much with just one sponsor when the deal first got announced. Reebok clearly made out like bandits only having to pay 15 million a year for exclusive sponsorship.

    The UFC didn't care. They just wanted to cut into their fighters pay even more to land some extra profit, while pretending that getting "official uniforms" makes them a legitimate sport when they give guys with no wins in 8 years and positive steroid tests title shots.

    Rory made a ridiculous amount of money from his sponsor too. I think he said like 300k in their crypto (which i imagine he cashed out immediately)

    inb4 UFC SHILL @FrankieNYC finds a way to shit on bellator

    I believe it. If someone as universally hated as Schaub was makin $100,000 in sponsors, it doesnt suprise me that Lyoto is makin a nicer chunk of change in Bellator than in UFC with Reebok

    Good for him he was nowhere close to a marketable star so if he can get some company to lose money on him that is great.
