I saw the other day where some newslady asked Rousey if she thought it was fair that she made so much less money than Mayweather. Rousey's response was basically "I've only fought 11 fights. Mayweather has fought 50."

It's also a lot about the draw. Two heavy weight guys boxing or mma will generally pull a larger crowd than the female side and the money is from that and ppv. So even if they aren't paid equally there's still logic behind it. Her point still being valid because the higher she climbs the more people will watch awaiting further ascent or the fall.

Boxers make a lot more money than MMA fighters when it comes to the pros. Boxing just has a lot more old money invested into it. That's why when Dana White tried to get Mayweather to do an MMA fighter VS him match, Mayweather retorted that he makes a lot more money. He, however, wasn't so quick witted when White offered to pay him his boxers wage.
