Im kind of surprised that Kimbo Slice in on that list. He dose not look like a man that makes the best choices with money or much else.

There has to be a lot of names left off that list if #40 has $100,000. There has be many fights where the fighters were payed $100K +. Heck I would bet Shane Carwin makes more then $100K at his real job.

In addition to people like Matt Mitrione that played in the NFL for a few years should have more then $100K.

With a few notable exceptions, the type of individual that makes a living fighting in a cage is probably not going to be financially savvy. Very few make $100k a fight and if they do, Uncle Sam gets roughly half. A night of partying in Las Vegas can be expensive as well.

Endorsements and opening a succesful gym is where the money is made.

No way has BJ made 20 million fighting. He came from a rich family. I can see Tito because he markets himself and that's where the money is. Just look at fighter salaries, DW pays chump change. Now they do get portions on the ppv that aren't fully disclosed.
