No, I'm not making "wild" assumptions, no matter how many times you write it in one pist to give it more weight .I'm making conclusions based on knowledge of MMA and common sense, whether you're able to comprehend it or not. The "better the devil you know" DOES NOT fit here, and doesn't work in MMA at all. Especially considering the UFC, who not only give lesser salary, but also don't allow fighters to use sponsors - and fir high caliber fighters it's a game changer. And PFL tourney is not a "toss up" for top fighters, at least for now. Do you think Edgar has a chance of losing against Siler? OSP vs O'Connell? Mousasi vs Taylor? RDA vs Magomedkerimov? And guess what - ALL of these fighters get now less than 1M a year. Plus , please go and check the way salaries between GP participants are given in PFL. Educate yourself. And don't worry - investors not only are able to understand what a knowledgeable fight fan can: they also can see a bigger picture, unlike you. They do understand the real significance of O'Connell retiring and what it means, they're smarter than you. Overall you're a great example of what will happen with WSOF on this model: ignorant fans like you will struggle to understand it at first. Not to worry though, once they gain steam you will ride this train, probably even pretending to be there from the start.
