    Im not sure didn't do the math but it sure as hell seems like it, gotta be embarassing for the UFC either way, one dude making more money than almost 500? fighters combined. Is Floyd just smarter than every fighter on the UFC roster perhaps?

    He's going to make at least 15-20x more than the UFC roster combined.

    Mayweather is an A-level athlete in a sport with a deep talent pool.

    Mayweather, in his last fight, made the current combined NET WORTH of the TOP30 MMA fighters past&present from all orgs.

    so it's not smart to focus on the most efficient way to make money while doing the least damage to your body. gotcha

    The same cannot be said for Ronda Rousey and the women divisions of the UFC. Yes, both divisions.

    He knows how to market himself. Dana doesn't know how to market anyone besides 2 fuggin fighters. Dana is a bad promoter. He only markets the brand itself. People need to know about the fighters. This isn't football, where the sport sells itself, and kids are growing up playing it, and it's deeply embedded in the American psyche.

    TLDR; Dana's promoting the sport like a team sport, and not like the individual sport it is. Jon Jones should be the biggest star by now, but Dana sucks at promoting him, unless his fight is coming up.

    Rhonda makes more per second

    Shit just for Alexis Davis and Cat Zingano, 30 seconds of fighting, made nearly $217,000 PER SECOND

    Sure seems like it, Rousey is an apparent "Mega Star" and making I wouldn't say peanuts, but bread crumbs in comparison to Floyd. She probably couldn't afford to feed Floyd's dog if he has one.

    Naw... Floyd would make more per second if he could actual finish someone. Too bad every fight he has goes to the end of time... and it feels like it literally does.

    Because he actually has a worthy huggin n thuggin partner, unlike Rousey. She avoids tough fights like I avoid AIDS.

    That makes zero sense..... Floyd is evenly matched with all his opponents that why he can't finish anyone. Rhonda is so much better than everyone else she ends them when she wants.

    Floyd couldn't knock out a drunk pig stuck in the mud. But I bet he would give it a lovely massage with his weak ass jab
