    The REAL reason Teddy Riner won't do MMA

    As counter-intuitive as it may seem to be making more money at an amateur sport than at a pro sport, that seems to be the case.

    Compare the purses for UFC 193...

    ... with what Teddy is reportedly worth.

    BTW it's 245 MILLION Euros, if you're having trouble reading the article.

    So easy to look down your nose at an activity when you're making 100 X the money doing another one.

    Oh shnoot. I know the onion, but I can't be expected to keep up with every hoax site that comes up.
    He does make a lot of money though. Perhaps not hundreds of millions but definitely millions because he was quoted complaining about the French taxation rate levied on revenues exceeding 1M €. He's had sponsorship deals with Adidas and been doing things like voicing Disney characters in French.

    To put Teddy Riner's annual income

    (400.000 Euro from Judo Club plus maybe 2 Mio from  sponsors and advertising)

    into perspective:

    http://www.forbes.com/athletes/list/#tab:overall

    But he is maybe number 3 of the top 10 Judoka annual income list:

    Number 2 is Ronda Rousey (6.5 Mio USD in 2015)
