Can you get rich from Grappling?

I know its a bit of a random question but i was wondering if the likes of Marcelo Garcia and other top grapplers would be rich? and if so how do they make their money because i have been told their are no cash prizes for the mundials and im not sure about ADCC?

You could get get rich grappling if you're willing to have gay sex at some point with the other guy while being filmed. Otherwise no.

Just kidding. I guess some people manage to get rich wrestling. ;D

They make money through endorsements, and get paid to make DVD instructionals.

The majority of them also have schools open which I'm sure bring in a decent amount of cash.

to answer your question no they cannot get rich just from grappling they can make a good amount of money but not rich. If they open up a chain of schools they can

Sponserships is a big source of income. But if you're doing it for the cash, you're doing it for the wrong reason. You're supposed to love your craft.
