WWE supertar Brock Lesnar put on an illustrious career during his run inside the octagon. During his tenure with the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion, the former UFC heavyweight champion event managed to walk away with the largest heavyweight salary in UFC history.
Brock Lesnar put on eight octagon performances as a mixed martial artist. By his fourth UFC match up, a highly anticipated rematch against fellow former champion Frank Mir, Lesnar managed to land a payday of $400,000.
As reported by MMA journalist Kevin Iole, the former UFC heavyweight champion’s latest match up earned Lesnar a UFC record breaking grand total of $2.5 Million. The fight was a three round war with Mark Hunt at UFC 200.
