George’s Answer

Please remember, only the super-elite make much of anything.
Consider the length of time a person MIGHT be able to perform, and how "broken" you will be for the rest of your life.

You MUST have a "plan B" and "plan C" if that's what you'd like to try.
Hi George! Thanks for your post. You’ve certainly mentioned a valid challenge of professional sports careers. In the future, it would be great if you could also include the information that directly answers the Student’s question, per our Community Guidelines. We want to make sure CareerVillage students are both informed and also encouraged. Thanks so much for being active in our community! Alexandra Carpenter, Admin

Hello Cameron,
In 2020, the average contracted UFC fighter made approximately $148,000 when bonuses and base salary were added up. With each round lasting five minutes, fights three or five rounds in length, and three fights a year, in an extremely narrow view UFC fighters are some of the highest-paid athletes in the world. Hope this helps! :)
