Top 60 Fighters With The Highest UFC Career Earnings Of All Time Have Been Revealed

Top 60 Fighters With The Highest UFC Career Earnings Of All Time Have Been Revealed

Conor McGregor tops the list with the highest UFC career earnings after pocketing over $15m across his illustrious MMA fighting career.

The 31-year-old Irish superstar made his sensational MMA return in January with a stunning first-round TKO victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.


And McGregor, who also received a mega-payday from his crossover fight with Floyd Mayweather, remains the clear frontrunner in UFC career earnings to date.

The 'Notorious' is miles ahead of MMA veteran Alistair Overeem, who placed second with $9,569,500 career earnings.

The Sports Daily reports that the career earnings are based on 'Fight of the Night, Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses that have been made public.'

The publication also added that not all athletic commissions report fighters' salaries, meaning they have 'estimated a fighter's purse based on what they have earned in their other fights.'


Posted below are the top 60 fighters with the highest UFC career earnings in history.
