Ah!!! Gotcha! You're right, I did miss that point. I stand corrected. And sadly, no leg to stand on to respectfully disagree. MMA fighters are paid disgracefully low compared to big ticket boxers. UFC PPV does well, but the sport itself isn't big enough to compete with boxing. Hopefully that changes, but I am not sure that it will anytime soon.
