The 20 Richest Mma Fighters In The World

Not a lot of fighters are millionaires, but there are some super rich fighters.

Although boxing has a wider fan base, there is still a lot of crossover between MMA and boxing.

There are a lot of big names in MMA and you might not know very well who they are. So I did some research and created this list.

The Richest MMA Fighters in the World

The list of the 20 richest fighters in MMA came out this week, and they’re mostly all in the top 10. They’re almost all currently worth over 20 million dollars, with many more making it from sponsorships and pay-per-view fees.

There is a difference between the list which was originally posted by MMA Junkie and the one we got today. In this one, Jon Jones is nowhere to be seen. Also, the biggest names on the list are missing.

20. Michael Bisping

Net Worth: $9 Million

Mike Bisping is an English sports commentator and retired mixed martial arts fighter. He was the UFC middleweight champion, and was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.

Net Worth: $9 Million

José Aldo is a Brazilian mixed martial artist for UFC. Aldo is the 4th Champion for UFC Featherweight, the first being Matt Hughes.

“After two defeats in a row, I believe in myself: I want to beat Belfort.”

Emelianenko is great at the mental side of the game, as one would expect from someone so disciplined in his diet and work ethic.
