MMA is much like wrestling in this respect those who draw the most fans make the most money, this is not a team sport where the most skilled makes the most, it is merely a combination of skill and drawing power. Why pay someone £50k a fight if he's only drawing £30k revenue? Someone is going to leave if he's making you £100k every time he fights and you're paying him £2k however.
And like any top fighter he acts like he thinks he's the best because in his mind that is how he has to believe to go forward, if you go into a fight thinking you're going to lose then your opponent already has the upperhand.
