    There are a lot of people in the combat sports world who come from money. More so than other big sports like baseball and football even . Bjj when it started in Brazil was an upper class thing . Takes a lot of support to be a fighter. More Jake Paul’s out there then people realize

    Topuria is the real deal.

    Tabera is still the legend of Spain MMA. The guy fought Glover and Blachowick is a span of three months, being a WW himself.

    Taycan’s are decent but hardly indicative of coming from a rich background. Step your game up Sherbro’s.

    Lol. Tell that to kids in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Uganda, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, and on and on. It all depends on the community you’re in. Inner cities in USA have had basketball courts all over since the 1960s so it’s been easy for poor kids but if there weren’t any you’d say basketball is expensive because you need a hoop and court and who can afford that?

    In places where public baseball facilities are maintained and accessible you don’t need to be rich at all.

    That's a fact. Soccer, baseball, basketball and football can be done on the cheap.

    That's a waste of money in my opinion. Better to focus on actually trying to get rich, instead of just trying to look rich. You don't get anything out of that money you are putting in, at the end of it you just lost money and have no car.

    Boxing too. MMA was always an upper class thing here in USA when mma gyms first started opening up. The high gym fees and only being located in the richer cities. It targeted middle and upper class people originally since they were the only ones with access to it or can afford the high fees.
