    Why not compare the Khabib/Conor fight purse to some random female boxing fight purse while we are at it ?

    thats what being big enough to draw 73,000 fans to fill a stadium will do .
    But yes the UFC robs fighters and boxing pays way better .

    Boxers obviously get paid more on average but you're comparing the highest paid boxer in the world in the biggest boxing match of the year so far to two females shoehorned into the main event slot because they're female, on maybe the deadest UFC card of the year so far.

    Don't think they were shoe horned in for the main event cause their female though . Should've been the main event card was that bad . Still had fun though and some decent fights

    Lol at shills here now acting like it's bad to compare them to women. It's still main event vs main event.

    Forget boxing, theres no comparison.

    Rory MacDonald made $59,000 base pay for fight against Robbie Lawler

    Marina made $87,000

    Let that shit sink in. UFC is a sick joke for anyone other than viewers.

    Are these confirmed?

    I am very shocked Waterson got less than Rodriguez. Waters has main evented like 5 times.

    Is it because of Rodriguez win bonus?

    Calling other people shills doesn’t make the argument any less intellectually bankrupt

    I think this money they are announcing is fictitious!
    The real money earnings keep them hidden!
