Jorge Masvidal’s MMA Career Earnings Revealed After UFC 251 Defeat To Kamaru Usman

Jorge Masvidal’s MMA Career Earnings Revealed After UFC 251 Defeat To Kamaru Usman

Jorge Masvidal's welterweight championship fight with Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 has now become his most lucrative MMA payday to date, according to reports.

The 35-year-old UFC star stepped up to face Usman on six days' notice after Gilbert Burns pulled out of the title fight due to testing positive for coronavirus.

Masvidal was unable to complete a stunning upset and lost by unanimous decision last weekend at UFC 251.

However, The Sports Daily now reports that 'Gamebred' walked away from the welterweight title fight with a hefty $530,000 pay package.

The Sports Daily added that the earnings 'don't include PPV and/or 'locker room' bonuses' that Masvidal might have received.

Posted below are Masvidal's career earnings from Strikeforce and UFC fights.
