Anderson Silva money?
Salary, undisclosed bonuses, post-fight awards, sponsorships ... Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones -- who averages three fights per year -- makes a lot of dough.
More than his two brothers combined.
That might come as a surprise to some mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, considering older brother Arthur (Baltimore Ravens) and younger brother Chandler (New England Patriots) are both starting players for National Football League (NFL).
But don't take my word for it ...
@Artj97 haha you make $2 million dollar base salary. Hook up @JonnyBones with your agent or with @RosenhausSports. @Chan95Jones @malkikawa
Arthur Jones ✔ @Artj97
@supernorms @JonnyBones @RosenhausSports @Chan95Jones @malkikawa I'm telling you he makes more then me and @Chan95Jones together.

And here we thought Renan Barao was "Money."
The eldest Jones earns a base pay of $2,023,000 for one year (via Bloody Elbow), while lil' Chandler has a four-year deal worth $8,172,552 ($7,421,215 guaranteed). "Bones" would need to break the $4 million dollar range to outperform them, putting him in this exclusive club.
Not too shabby.
Then again, it helps when you win, which is something that almost didn't happen (despite this Dumbass prediction) at the UFC 165 pay-per-view (PPV) event (watch it) back on Sept. 21, 2013 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, courtesy of Alexander Gustafsson and a "sloppy" Jones.
Sloppy, but well paid.
