    Apparently some GOAT Sherdogger emailed the CSAC in 2017 and they gave him the purses.

    RVR on dat $10/10k. Adesanya on a strong $1/2k deal, though it seems to be finish instead of win bonuses.

    Of course that is only disclosed, but I doubt Glory was throwing around that much backstage bonuses. In their defense they probably aren't bringing in much money.

    Its more complicated than that. Not sure where Adesanya was ranked but like I said kickboxing P4P list is not like a UFC P4P list so being ranked 30 in boxing or mma is a lot different than being ranked 30 in kickboxing because there are less fighters and wider gaps in skill.

    Think Stoica went down after like 1 kick and didn't really seem to want to fight. Not a huge win, especially the way it came. Adesanya is a pretty great kickboxer tbh but he was a big fish in a small NZ pond for too long and didn't really have the results against other high-level fighters he could and should have had.

    Glory pays more than the disclosed payments in image rights or whatever they call it. Still not exactly higher level UFC money or anything.

    So just to clarify for people who don't follow kickboxing:

    1 - MW division is ridiculously shallow;

    2 - Adesanya was good but nowhere near elite p4p status;

    3 - Kickboxing's overall talent pool is shallow;

    4 - Kickboxing pays like shit;

    5 - Kickboxers are flocking left and right to mma and boxing.
