Brock Lesnar earned the biggest payout in UFC history: Here's how much he made

13 July 2016 / 3 months 1 week ago

Brock Lesnar made his highly anticipated return to the octagon after almost five years out.

Going into the ring against Mark Hunt, he was the outsider, the underdog, and far from the bookies favourite, reports UniLad.

People thought: how could a man who has been out of the game so long just re-enter and take out the world’s number eight – the Super Samoan?

But in a stunning show of brutality, Lesnar obliterated Hunt and his critics by dominating the first and third round and picking up a clear victory.

But that isn’t all he picked up. Despite many claiming the Hunt fight to have been Lesnar’s ‘best ever’,  he was also handed the ‘best ever’ (biggest) UFC pay out of all time.

Reports state Lesnar’s bank account was handed a very tasty US$2.5 million for his fight against Hunt – the largest payout in UFC history.
