Why do MMA fighters have so many defeats?

This is not an MMA vs Boxing post, its simply my honest opinion. Elite MMA fighters do compile the tremendous records that elite boxers do for several reasons. 1.The versatility of the sport is much greater. In boxing the winner is usually (duh) the better boxer. In MMA the winner could be the better boxer, wrestler, kickboxer, bjj player, etc depending on where the fight winds up. More overall surprises. 2.Its a newer sport and a smaller community. MMA fighters encounter each other and fighters they have each fought more often than boxers. 3. Less record protecting. You don't see top guys in mma getting as many fights with nobodies as boxers (not saying that it doesn't ever happen).

If you want to get paid good for kickboxing you should go overseas to Japan or Thailand or China, they all have major leagues over there. I am a MMA fighter and I have taken a fight with the UFC for a undercard fightnight and I won by submission in the 2nd and I was paid $3,000 for the fight, (before taxes). If anybody tells you UFC pays they are a liar unless you are a top star like Courture, Liddel, Jackson to name a few. Go to a MMA message board, they usually have the fighter payouts and you will see you don't make much money at all. That's why most fighters also work 9-5 jobs.
