    "Because that event took place in Abu Dhabi, the salaries were not officially released, but if Forbes’ report is accurate, then Nurmagomedov made over $10 million for the Poirier fight alone, which he won via third-round submission in yet another dominant showing."
    " Forbes reported that Nurmagomedov totaled $16.5 million in earnings for the fiscal year ending in April 2020. This put Nurmagomedov in elite company as he was ranked ahead of NHL superstars Alexander Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin, and Artemi Panarin, plus a number of Russian celebrities and musicians, as well.

    The Forbes rankings combine the earnings of the athletes or celebrities plus factors in their social media profile, as well. With Nurmagomedov having over 20 million followers on Instagram, that put him at the top of the list when combined with his earnings, which include the money he made in the UFC, plus sponsorships and speaking arrangements "

    The Forbes report says that Nurmagomedov also charges roughly $78,000 for his speaking arrangements and the money he earned there was factored into his total earnings.

    Well he got 6 mil base / reported pay

    The ppv sold over a million

    There's no way he made only 4 million for that amount of ppvs sold

    Not surprising, Khabib is a global superstar.

    He’s the biggest name/draw in the sport after Conor as evidenced by his social media following (20 million+). To put that in perspective Jon Jones, Nate Diaz, and Masvidal combined have about 10 mill total.

    skill for skill, pound for pound

    Jones would absolutely dominate any version of Khabib and make it look easy

    Bullshit.

    A 6'2", 205 lb Khabib would ass-rape Jones.

    There is nothing Jones could do about it ...

    HOW, exactly?

    DC the Olympian couldn't outwrestle Jones but a 205 pound Khabib would?

    You're delusional just like half of ur other absurdly biased opinions ..

    I don't even know how to respond to this level of poor analysis so I'm just going to ignore itis


    please explain how Khabib has the skill set to beat Jones

    DC is an Olympian and was nowhere near being able to wrestle Jones. Nor was any fighter throughout his career able to wrestle him.

    But Khabib could? who hasn't yet even been challenged by a legitimate collegiate wrestler?

    are you suggesting he would outstrike Jones?

    that's about all I'm gonna respond to you with.

    don't need to waste my time on trolls / casuals

    an Olympian and wrestled against cael Sanderson..

    One of the best wrestlers in mms history

    But he's just a fat fuck?

    you're trying to suggest that Khabib EASILY outwrestles Jones. someone who is undefeated, competed against countless high level wrestlers and hasn't ever been close to outwrestled

    Meanwhile Khabib, beast as he may be, hasn't even had his takedown prowess tested against a legit collegiate level wrestler.

    yet you speak with such confidence and certainty

    yes I'm the delusional one here

    This is no different than your other extremely biased opinions that you're consistently wrong about y

    you are way too emotional to be taken seriously in analysis
