While the earnings of these UFC stars are impressive, they fall short of the eight-figure mark for compensation. McGregor and Rousey, key figures in the UFC‘s growth, receive modest compensation compared to the organization’s ROI. The pending UFC antitrust lawsuit may bring changes that benefit fighters and fans alike, potentially leading to more substantial rewards for prominent athletes.
