    Welcome to MMA, where the writers are idiots and the pay doesn't matter.

    $500,000 is the highest purse I've ever seen for a UFC fighter. I know they get bonuses and PPV money as well, but the purses are never impressive. Alex Leapai had a bigger purse against Klitschko than this entire card. Haha

    Its annoying when people say that, but to malign MMA websites is ridiculous.

    Not sure why people care about disclosed purse. Jones gets PPV points and probably made 3 mill atleast since this card is trending at 700-1 mill buys.

    It's not 24/7. most other jobs at minimum 8 hours a day as well. The article is stupid but you're equally as stupid if you think combat sports = 24/7 and therefore >> other jobs.

    OP buys into the whole "fighting is in our DNA/It's a lifestyle" schtick.

    The only site I really care to read from an MMA writer is Zach Arnold's Fight Opinion website and he's having a tough time making ends meet.

    The real funny part is the amount of people that're like:

    "Dude, I'm so exhausted. This's the only time in weeks I've gotten to hang out with somebody who isn't a training partner and where I don't have to focus on recovering my body for my next training session. Yesterday I spent three hours getting out of triangle chokes in the morning and getting jabbed in the face at night, and between that I did a superset; I did this all on a breakfast and lunch of nothing but berries, spinach and tempeh. No salt; salt makes me retain water, which I can't have going on for my 20-lb weight cut in a couple weeks."

    "Yeah, I know what you mean. I had to work overtime on Friday at the gas station. We're pretty much in the same boat."

    the only wtf is the following:

    Brad tavares got paid 25 + 25 for his 11th fight (and 8th win) in the UFC

    Horiguchi got paid 20 + 20 for his 4th fight.
