As a result of an ongoing class action lawsuit against the UFC, court documents appear to have revealed the full earnings of major stars like Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones and more during the period from 2011-2016.
Unlike the standard fighter salaries that have typically been released in the past following UFC events, these figures appear to show each fighter’s full earning, including pay-per-view revenue, which is usually kept under wraps.
The documents show that Conor McGregor is believed to have earned in the region of $25 million for the nine fights he participated in during that time period, of which he won eight. Meanwhile, another superstar of that era, Ronda Rousey is reported to have banked in the region of $13 million from seven fights, having won six of them.
Georges St.Pierre scored over $15 million from four winning title fights, while Anderson Silva earned well over $27 million from his nine fights, of which he won five.
Meanwhile, Jon Jones took home over $15 million from seven fights, while Brock Lesnar earned $11 million from just two fights.
