Jon Jones’ UFC Career Earnings Have Been Revealed Online

Jon Jones’ UFC Career Earnings Have Been Revealed Online

Jon Jones' most lucrative MMA payday came in his blockbuster rematch with fierce rival Daniel Cormier in 2017.

The 32-year-old UFC legend secured a stunning unanimous decision victory over 'DC' when the pair initially clashed in 2015 at UFC 182.

And the rematch, which was later overturned to a no contest after 'Bones' tested positive for turinabol, was the most lucrative for Jones.

According to MMA Daily, the light heavyweight champ earned a total of $580,000 on the night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Jones pocketed $500,000 to show up for the fight, $50,000 for his Performance of the Night bonus and $30,000 from Reebok sponsorship.

MMA Daily has said that the earnings are 'UFC pay only' and doesn't include 'PPV or locker room bonuses.'
