    He’s a nobody.

    A lot of the fighters purse comes from revenue on the night (PPV, gate etc etc)

    Nate Diaz averaged $16,000 a fight till he fought McGregor...


    Want to make big bucks as a fighter? Find a USP like Covington had to, or a bitter rivalry with an other fighter/s


    It’s not science. Unless you’re champion tier, ie long winning streaks, or either highly obnoxious (McGregor, Covington) or an interesting character, you’re not going to get rich.


    Masvidal is the perfect example of hustle, ability and character.

    While I respect the hype around him, he in no way deserves to be considered a top tier money bringer. He's fought two guys in the top 10, Diaz for BMF and Wonderboy who he lost to. I want to see him against Cannonier before getting on the hype train. The Askren knockout, while spectacular, wasn't impressive in terms of beating a difficult opponent. Since Askren came to the UFC, all of his fights looked like he was in slow motion and just didn't have the IT factor.

    I remain cautious of his skill vs high level fighters whilst giving props for being good at finally marketing himself properly.

    They all have long term contracts. If their plan is to walk and continue fighting somewhere else, they will get sued and the court may even order their new fights to be postponed. Happens all the time in boxing where there is a dispute over if they are still under a given promoters contract.

    They could all mass retire if they wanted to but then they get zero money.

    fukken lmao @ getting your face kicked in live on ESPN for an average accountant salary

    This and its only good until your mid to late 30s then you need a new career. And his 66k /year (before expenses) earnings were basically his peak earnings.

    Its a terrible job path, cant even call it a career. And he was more successful than most.

    Jeez, fight two times in the UFC whilst living at your parents, apply for a loan at the bank for a gym, earn a good living owning a gym and training suckers, free training, steady income.

    Brb fight once, buy second hand truck and a bag of weed.

    If you're not going for a belt this is a marketing campaign. And it's a good one. Shetty fighters earn good money through use of their shetty name.

    Noticed you didn't mention Till. That's when Masvidal really broke out if I recall correctly.

    Masvidal wasn't supposed to beat Til either, but Masivdal had his way with him
