So if you have to make a guess, what percentage of UFC fighters can have a MMA career that will make them enough money to retire and have a comfortable life after that? Without a doubt at least half the fighters don't even have that luxury DURING their career (fighting 3 time a year for 24k per fight does not make you rich AT ALL, you could even call them poor), and even those making around 100k per year should not be considered rich. When all costs are substracted most of them will just have an average income. MMA seems to be one of the least attractive pro sport careers as far as money goes, only the top fighters seem to make decent money, with some of then making REALLY good money... but those are just a few out of thousands en thousands of fighters. Obviously the most money goes to Zuffa, they are settled for the rest of their lives. So what percentage of fighters is making enough money to retire rich for the rest of their lives?
