Brock-lesnar-ufc-87

ESPN recently released a list of the highest paid athletes in 30 different sports. The top earner on the MMA list, as expected, was former UFC champion Brock Lesnar. What was surprising was his paltry total of just $5.3 million. As the headliner of two major pay per views that did more than a million pay per view buys, Lesnar played a big part in creating more than $100 million of revenue. Comparatively, top boxer Manny Pacquiao took home $32 million for his two 2010 fights. He likely paid more in income tax than Lesnar made all year. Boxers have set the market price for combat sports athletes. MMA fighters with leverage take note.

Canadian featherweight star Mark Hominick joined Mauro Ranallo on The Fight Show today to discuss his fight next week with UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo. "You couldn't paint a better picture. This is the inaugural UFC fight in Ontario, the biggest UFC of all time, the inaugural (UFC defense of) 145 pound belt. My wife due five days after the title fight. You couldn't paint a better picture. Everything's aligned for me go in there and do what I know I'm capable of doing... There's no down time. Every minute of every day has its importance. That's how I treat it. It almost reminds me of my University days. I was in business school and I was defending the TKO belt in Quebec. I was going through school, training in the morning, training again at night, studying in between, then doing it again the next day."
