    Every season she gets a free ride to the finals taking out soccer moms left and right and earns a cool 1 million from PFL.

    She’s fighting the infamous Cindy Dandelion tomorrow.

    Can’t blame her if she never fought in the UFC. She’s most likely be taking a pay cut.

    Cindy DanGOAT pulls off the upset. Beats Valentina, Nunes, and Cyborg on the same night.

    She very likely doesn’t. The disclosed numbers we see from commissions don’t include PPV points and other bonuses. For example Jon Jones says he receives around 5 million per fight, far more than what was reported.

    Israel Adesanya draws in similar numbers to Jones. It’s reasonable to believe that he receives similar pay in PPV points

    100% agree. It's a shame though, since Nunes vs Harrison is easily the best current WMMA match up. Promoted correctly, I could see that actually having a shot at bringing in some decent PPV buys.

    It's to think that Harrison will leave PFL. One because there isn't her division anywhere and two she's beating cans and making 1mill a year for it. I would be shocked if she cuts to 145lbs to fight in the UFC.

    Well, if she wins that is. I know in her first season she was paid $100,000 per fight w/ a $25,000 bonus if she won. Then $1,000,000 for winning the tournament obviously. I'm not sure if she makes more this season, but my guess is she is making the same. She has been pretty vocal this year about things she doesn't like with the PFL and I'd be shocked if she returns after this season, despite it appearing to be an easy $1,300,000+ per year for her.

    Adesanya made 500,000 flat fee for his MW title defense against Vettori (plus an unannounced amount of PPV points that would increase his total significantly). And he was paid $600,000 for his fight w/ Jan Blachowicz (plus $40,000 sponsorship bonus), I'm assuming no PPV points since he entered that fight as a title challenger and the a champion [at that weight]. Plus, Israel has his Puma sponsorship among others. He also made $600,000 flat fee against Costa (plus PPV Points, 50k Performance Bonus and 40k Sponsorship bonus). He also made $500,000 flat against Romero (Plus PPV Points).

    All of that to say, maybe on paper you could make a case for her making more, but in reality Israel makes a lot more than her per year. Overall Adesanya's made somewhere around 8-10 million just in his MMA Career, Kayla has probably made around 1.5 -2 million.

    Cindy survived 3 rounds with Alexis Davis. That's something that Amanda Nunes couldn't do.

    She has a background in a C-level (borderline B-level) sport in Judo, of course she should be making more
