Rounds are 3 minutes, amateur boxing is 2. Title fights are 12 rounds. The max amount of rounds. The money is there for the promoters of both sports. Buster Douglas was broke after beating Tyson. He had so many trainers & what not to pay, he got a few hundred thousand but after paying everyone, had no money! The promoters take their cut right off the top. I'm not saying it's fake or real, I know I don't want to get punched or kicked in the face! But the money is there. Look at the argument, mma fighters don't much. No they don't, but Dana White sure does! Look at ticket prices, merch, tv shows! UFC is going around buying out smaller MMA promotions!
