Myles Jury: It Costs To Be A Fighter

myles jury

Myles Jury is taking his ability to reach the masses through his personal website and educating the MMA world.

In his latest blog entry, Jury posted the real-life expenses to being a professional fighter in this day and age.

Jury goes over all the costs, saying “You’re running a self-employed business as an MMA fighter, where you have income from competition and expenses from training camps. Like boxing, MMA fighters receive a guaranteed purse known as the ‘show,’ for weighing in at your contracted weight and entering the contest.

“With a win, you receive a win bonus that is the same amount as your purse to show.”

The breakdown includes gym and management fees, taxes, medicals, coaching fees and what is earned.

As for his fighting career, Jury will debut at featherweight in December against Charles Oliveira.
