I would take those numbers, most of them with a grain of salt. The boobies are great though.

Rogan easily makes 500k for a big event. He is more important than most of the stars. A guy like Usman as champ makes 500k that night. Who do you think brings in more money Usman or Rogan?

I agree. Rogan promotes the shit out of the fights for them too on his podcast. That value alone is worth more than 500k. He isn’t getting out of bed for 50k.

No boxing referee is making 25K for reffing a fight. None.

They do sometimes. The three letter orgs that sanction title fights (WBC, WBO, etc) set the pay for the officials and it is a percentage of the purse (but usually never exceeds $25k).

 

And that is for one title bout. Not a few on the card.

Rogan can’t make a half million per show. But even if he did - he doesn’t need that money. He doesn’t like the 10 days away from home, so he said when he stopped doing international. 

Way back when he’d book a standup gig around the same time a surge fight and save on his travel costs. But he doesn’t have to hustle like that anymore.

What? Nobody is tuning into a shit fight to hear Rogan commentate it. The matchups and the fighters sell the fights. Rogan doesn't make close to 500k per event, nor should he.
