Bellator featherweight Tywan Claxton turned down a high-paying job offer to fight full-time. According to the 28-year-old fighter, it was a full-stack developer job that would’ve paid him $250,000 per year.
- As “Air” Claxton revealed in a tweet, he took the interview on Tuesday “for sh-ts and giggles” and to test his knowledge. Surprisingly, he ended up getting the job.
- That same day, he decided he was a “full-time fighter, part-time developer” until he wins the Bellator 145-pound title when he gives up the job altogether.
- Claxton kicked off his pro career with Bellator in 2017. With eight total fights under his belt, his career disclosed earnings amount to $60,000
