    Why are people so distracted by other peoples' money? All these threads, it's really quite odd.

    The weird thing about it to me is that it's a new phenomenon in this sport too. 10 years ago nobody talked about fighter pay, PPV #s, gate #s, etc.
    Nobody cared lol

    I'm at least glad to see there are a few real fighters above him on a single payday.

    This is complete, non-science base extrapolation, but it looks like maybe the top 40 people actually make a good living at fighting. Which leaves 460 not doing as well as they had hoped. I know theres always performance bonuses, but getting your head kicked in for 60K a year doesnt sound like fun

    Whoever told you that is your enemy.
    MM 6 years as champ 11 title defenses. Has a pool from Walmart in his postage stamp sized back yard and this was probably bought with his Xbox sponsorship. Fighters are living large.

    Conor will probably make more than all of them combined in the Khabib fight.

    Nah. We did talked about fighter pay. This was pre-Conor/social media era so you kinda ran out of things to talk about.
