Jon Jones saw all the zeros next to Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s name. He knows how much money the world's best boxer made while dominating his opponent last weekend.
If Jones does something similar to Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 in Toronto this weekend, he realizes the reward for being arguably the world's top mixed martial artist is only a fraction of Mayweather's $40 million-plus payday.
And it doesn't bother the UFC light heavyweight champion at all.
Jones (18-1) is the UFC's main attraction at Air Canada Centre on Saturday when he steps into the octagon with Sweden's Gustafsson (15-1), the latest 205-pounder to take a shot at ending Jones' 2½-year championship reign. If Jones wins, he'll break Tito Ortiz's promotion record with his sixth successful title defense.
