That looks more like the payouts top athletes deserve. Nothing is more offensive to me than athletes getting more money than the people who are really important on this planet. 50k a fight makes 100-150k a year plus sponsor money. I bet that EA sponsorship deal is big money, then you have the royalties for the EA MMA game... sounds like a nice income. Now all we need is a fighters' union so everyone can get these 50k/fight and everyone can live happily ever after.
Watching sports makes people happy and takes there mind off of things(if somethings going on) they deserve what they make or more in this case.
nothing brings people together like sports and music.
