    How Floyd Mayweather Made A Record $275 Million For One Night Of Work


    :mindblown:

    This was not talked about enough.
    You mean to tell me that of all the money Mcgregor made was still just a cut of UFC's money?

    Instead of asking why NBA players are making so much, he should be asking why UFC fighters make so little :martin:

    Simple numbers and being unionized.

    NBA just generate more money and the players union is strong enough to get a larger %.

    UFC make a lot of money too, but the fighters just don't have enough power without a union. For these fighters to form a union, they all gotta be united especially the stars and accept the fact they're not gonna be paid until it's settled. The thing with the UFC though is even if all their fighters go on strike, i think it'll be easier for them to go out and sign non-unionized fighters and then promote the crap out of them and still sell their cards. It's harder for the NBA to find another LeBron, Durant, Tatum:lolbron:.

    NBA players weren’t eating even 10 years after MJ retired

    Depends on the fighter tho. Who making the big money now? Most big name fighters compete like maybe once or twice a year I say. They seem to have events every week or so but I doubt these random ass fighters getting a million buys for their cards. Especially with streaming these days.

    They’re in a union and revenue is split due to their collective bargaining agreement.

    idiot asking the wrong question, should be asking why haven’t MMA fighters banded together for some type of union / collective representation so these bozos can stop getting their brains beat to mush for pennies...

    Its business 101, Supply & Demand. More people want to watch the NBA (Demand) and they do business all over the WORLD (Supply). The NBA is a GLOBAL league.

    Imagine having a fast food restaurant and you only sell on 1 corner (UFC)
    Imagine having a fast food restaurant but you are on every corner in the city (NBA)

    Same thing goes for the WNBA players that make this same argument.
