    Only fights every 6 months if you're lucky, gets unreasonable hype, and gets paid ridiculous money

    At this point I would say Conor is more well known than Brock. Both of them don't need money so they make appearances once or twice a year and get paid huge for it so it's not like either of them need all the exposure they can get

    "Only fights every 6 months"... That's because it's real. Most champions fight every 6 months at best. And his pay makes Brocks look like buttons.

    I was being very...very generous with the comparison...Brock wrestles more regularly but thats not saying much when you compare average matches per year vs. average fights

    Brock in the WWE maybe...
    Brock in the UFC is nothing like Conor. He actually won and defended his belt several times and unified the interim belt and real belt.

    Conor is a more active fighter than Brock is a wrestler. Wrestlers compete 200 times a year. Brock maybe 40. Fighters compete 3 times a year absolute max. Conor competes once a year minimum.

    lol... No.

    Brock is ridiculously overpaid in WWE. Conor is ridiculously underpaid in the UFC.

    Brock wrestles nowhere near 40
    He makes under 40 appearances in total
    He doesn't even hit 10 matches a year

    This is the proper comparison with WWE and Conor.

    Also UFC makes far more money off Conor than WWE does off Brock

    False. Plenty of fighters have fought 4 or more times in a year, and done so regularly. So "3 times a year absolute max" is absolute bullshit.

    I remember how Conor defended his belt in LW belt in 2017...


    And no, his fake ass boxing match against Floyd Mayweather does not count. He is a MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST, so going to another sport and getting your ass beat does not count towards being active. Esp. when you're screwing up 2 divisions in the same process.



    Other than that, yeah. Compared against their peers in their own sport, Conor MIGHT be considered "more active".

    Ok. Conor is at the elite level of fighting. Show me all the elite fighters with more than 3 fights a year. You're nitpicking for the sake of it. You know the point. Conor is more active. Far more active in MMA than Brock is in wrestling. Your "Might be" is complete bullshit. Brock wrestles literally 5-10% as much as the regular guys. Conor fights at absolute worst 25% as much as guys who compete 4 times a year. Which isn't normal in the UFC at all.
