Keep in mind that a few, definitely Ken Shamrock and Tito Ortiz, also received a percentage of the PPV sales profits.

But boxing is a more popular sport and has more sponsors and promoters.

Because some people here are probably interested in getting involved in the sport on a professional level, that's why. If you were applying for a job in some other capacity, you'd want to know how much you had the potential to earn, wouldn't you?

Let me start off by saying that I seriously doubt that someone trying to get into the game of MMA would come to an INTERNET FORUM where 99% of people don't have a clue what they are talking about. Secondly, I would imagine if you were trying to get into MMA you would probably start by contacting GYMS or or somewhere that is AFFILIATED with MMA. If you were training MMA to get into MMA, I am pretty sure that where you are training would have some info or contact information you could get from them. Third, would you like people all over the world knowing how much you made, because some retard plastered it all over the internet? If I had to guess I would say NO, I know I sure wouldn't. Dana White has already said along with numerous fighters, that they don't want people knowing how much they make. Posting stuff like this shows no respect for the guys that entertain you. Why do you think morons sue celebrity's every chance they get for stupid s%$@? Because, people know how much they make and how much they got.

Listen to this it was posted earlier this weekend I think:

LOL, Tyson would make 30 million now because he would put everything he owned against the guy he was fighting and then throw the fight.

I like post's like this because you can tell how much the sport has grown off of the fighters purse's in the last few years to now.

But ya Mir made out in his fight lol.

I think you hit it on the nail. Also, it's true that it's normally very public what kind of money athletes make. I donno if were intrigued by it or somethin, but yea flip it on ESPN and your always hearin YEA GRIFFEY JR MADE 30 MIL THIS YEAR AND HES INJURED. Blah blah blah (that was a story last year or somethin I think). Neway, it might not be our business but it's interesting.
