    What do you think GSP is making per year these days...taking into account his endorsements, and fight purses...With his sponsorships including two giants in Gatorade and Under Armour..and assuming he fights 2-3 times in 2010, what do you think he will make in 2010?

    debating with a buddy over this..Id figure somewhere in the 2 mill range?

    thoughts?

    im basing this off of Gsp making 400k for his win over Alves....so im thinking he would make about 1 mill in fight purses, and 1 mill in sponsorships

    I would say that is a pretty good guess. Maybe a bit higher.

    I'd say more. He probably gets a cut of the PPV profits plus sponsorships it could be well above 1mil/yr. All speculation though.

    I totally forgot about Public appearances and getting a cut of the PPVs...he probably does make 4 mill a year..not bad for a 26 year Mixed martial artist...especially considering where this sport was 10 years ago

    incredible

    Considering what fighters were banking 5 years ago its amazing to see where it is now good for GSP

    GSP gets ppv percentage so he is probably making about 2.5 mil a fight. Add on top of that endorsements and stuff like that and he is probably around the 6-7 mil range a year

    I honestly wouldnt be surprised if it was close to $10mil a year considering the sponsorships that he has. I'm also willing to bet he gets more than average for public appearances in Canada since they lick his nuts.

    he makes more than Matt Hughes which makes me :(

    but seriously, with endorsements, PPV cut, etc, i'd guess more than 5 less than 10

    you are nuts comparing the biggest reality TV show (record setting show) stars to an MMA athlete. Completely different market. 85% of teh US knows who the Jersey shore kids are, about 25% know who GSP is.

    I say he makes 5-6mil a year. The popular jersey shore kids prob make 2-3 million so far. Next year their salaries will raise, and endorsements will be more.
