Apparently the 30 million is 10X more than he made in his last UFC fight - and that's for losing; Mayweather made more than triple for winning. Either it shows how much more popular boxing is, or it shows how disgustingly underpaid MMA fighters are in the UFC.

A little of both. The most modern form of professional boxing has been around for over 100 years. Professional MMA less than 30. Needless to say boxing has a way larger fanbase and more major sponsors making those paydays possible. 

Also UFC pays most of the guys pretty low. Most of them are lucky if they can make 50K on a fight. That's with performances bonuses. That's why so many guys make the move to Bellator. They pay their fighters better.

Not only that there are people who still view MMA as barbaric and dangerous. When it reality it's track record shows that it's safer than boxing. 

They pay some fighters better. The upper echelon UFC fighters get paid more than any other MMA fighters. It's just far less than top level boxers. Conor and most champions get PPV points. His guaranteed salary for the second Nate Diaz fight was 3 million. After his cut of the PPV it was over 10 million. Bellator has had two underwhelming PPVs. While there are a few exceptions, Rory MacDonald and Gegard Mousasi come to mind, most of the fighters that Bellator pays are over hill fighters that the UFC no longer wants.



I wish someone would knock that wife beater off his high horse

Pretty much 50% of his earnings goes to the taxman. And being the legend he is he's chosen to pay them in ireland,  unlike bono and Co. He's done so much for this country. 

Boxing is corrupt to the core.  Did you see what happened in the Olympics with the Russian boxers being handed victorys even in matches where they were destroyed!

 

boxing is certainly one of the easiest sports to corrupt and has a lot of issues, but I personally would not label the Olympics as a good exampe of that. I am assuming you are talking about the heavy weight gold fight, it was actually a very close fight, remember Olympics is purely a points based decision, it doesn't matter that Levit was doing the most damage and certainly would have beaten him had the fight gone longer, I personally I think the russian lost but not by much.

There were a ton of rigged fights in the Olympics and no I'm not referencing yours.  Katie Taylor and Michael conlon are 2 other examples. 



I should have put money on Mayweather. I knew he would kick his ass.
