Since Jan. 1: 110K + 50K FOTN bonus for Oliveira fight; got 58K + 50K FOTN bonus for Luque fight + 15K Reebok = $283K this year.
Three fights last year: Estimated $175K.
$450K in two years, and he's broke (and suspended).
Also add in any other endorsement deals/sponsors he might have and any other bonuses Dana throws his way (he is one of Dana's favourites).
He should be living a very comfortable life right now
You think he took home 450k the last two years?
minus taxes...35% tax bracket
minus training expenses...(paying Jackson/Wink, Fusion X-Cel)
minus manager (Kawa)
minus probably a few other things we don't know about.
He's probably living off less than 100k a year
This is probably pretty close to the most accurate outcome. Manager, trainer and travel/training expenses along with taxes he never paid and therefore probably didn't properly minimize are a pretty expensive bunch of items.
