There's no telling how much Anderson made last year in total because he also fought Bonnar.
Well according to GSP he makes about 5mil per fight.
And i imagine his contract now is similar or more. Im not certain but iv not read anything about him signing any new contract in recent memory.
But i have read similar statements to what you just mentioned. Even using google right now i see some articles stating GSP makes 15 million a year.
So im not saying you are wrong just that its a possibility.
Yeah i think this is overkill for Alvarez BUT tbh this is great. maybe this is a indication of the UFC upping the amount they pay. I have seen a steady increase in pay days since i started watching MMA. Im sure alot of the people on good winning streaks are aching to resign a new contract.
