    Conor spoke today about how youtube is a lot better then other media platforms.

    1 million views per month nets you around 3000USD from what I have read. Most fighters could easily get that if they uploaded entertaining content. Would be a nice way to earn more income.

    The better looking female fighters could make mega money.

    Why would you need Youtube when you've got Reebok?

    He has 6 million views in his first month though. So 18k. 18k x 12 is 216k a year from youtube. No wonder he is doing it...

    He will get a lot more views as his channel grows as well.

    That is a nice chunk of change for mortals but the number is inflated because it's his first month. I would imagine it tapers down. Someone his status would use that for funding shit like party budgets
