Or a brand focused promoter like Dana/UFC that divides the pay among hundreds of fighters & no matter who wins/loses, their fanbase is always there just like NHL/NFL/etc?

Most of the UFC roster not being multi-millionaires is not that big of a deal to me. Most journeyman boxers are poorer than anyone on the UFC roster. All but the highest paid athletes would still kill for that kind of opportunity & visibility.

Then there's the years-long ducking routines/corrupt officials/bum-slaughters of boxing. Which are fueled by the every-fighter-is-a-franchise model. Most of the fight being won or lost before the bell rings.
Yeah but you donít think there is ducking in the UFC? Look at how many hand picked midgets Connor was allowed to cherrypick on his way up there was no mention of him fighting at his actual weight. When he got to his actual weight then he took forever to fight Khabib who he was allowed to duck for about 3 years.
