UFC Career Fighter Earnings
 
Quote:

Ever wonder how much money your favourite fighter has earned throughout their career? Us too, so we went about figuring it out. Here is the total career earnings for every UFC fighter over the past seven years (the only fighter we are missing is Renzo Gracie, who we currently can't get a good pay estimate for).


But, before we reveal the list, first some ground rules. Athletic commissions didn't start releasing fighter purse info until 2004, so the info below only reflects money earned from UFC 46 and onward. Also, these are only the reported salaries plus Fight of the Night, Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses that have been made public. Many top performing fighters get additional bonuses paid out to them that aren't reported, plus the top guys get a cut of the pay-per-view buys for events that they headline (not to mention every fighter makes sponsorship money). Also, many athletic commissions don't report fighter's salary info, so for those we've estimated a fighter's purse based on what they have earned in their other fights. Fighters with some estimated purses are marked with a * in the database. This data should still be considered very close to accurate, as most fighters' purses remain rather steady from fight to fight (unless they ink a new contract in the meantime).

This list is a living, breathing thing - we will be updating it after each UFC event's pay info is released, so check back often.

I actually don't hate Bisping, but it is hard to justify his salary based on his achievements.

Also, i'm pretty sure everyone in the top 10 has received PPV money. Like 2 bucks per ppv buy or sth like that. I wonder if Bisping ever received any, doubtful.. Your numbers will more than double once you hit main event status.

Brydon - Except for Koscheck and Sanchez - though Diego did win on TUF 1.

Does this include sponsors or just UFC pay?

Comes from a rich family. He was made of money before he even started fighting

Am I the only one that feels that Bisping gets paid too much? I mean, I get that hes posterboy for UFC England, but dang. He makes more than champions. And never have I said "oh Bispings figthing, I cant miss this!" never. His style doesnt do it for me.

I am glad Chuck sits at the top. That guy defined the UFC/MMA for quite a while and still does for some people.
