5 richest UFC fighters in 2019
- There are some quite unexpected names as the UFC fighters with the most net worth this year! #UFC #UFCDC
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is the largest MMA promotion in the world. As such, some of the top fighters from around the world come to the UFC each year and compete against the other top-ranked UFC fighters.
The best UFC fighters are often those who not only compete in the Octagon with their immaculate fighting styles but also ensure that they can draw a crowd. UFC puts focus on those fighters who have drawing power more, as if they are able to draw a big crowd, they can also ensure that UFC makes more money with more eyes on their product.
As a result of this, UFC naturally pays these fighters more as well and they become some of the highest-paid figures in the world of MMA. As a side note, in this article, I will only be including those names who were involved in the world of UFC in some way or form, including those who may have retired this very year, even if they did not fight.
However, MMA fighters' net worth will not be included if they already retired in or before 2018. As a result, Rorion Gracie's net worth of $50 Million will not be included. Without any further ado, let's list the top UFC fighters' net worths and see who the richest UFC fighters were in the year of 2019.
#5 Anderson Silva
Anderson Silva is a fighter who may be considered a legend of the business having held the UFC Middleweight Championship for an incredible 7 years. His contribution to the world of MMA is fantastic, and it appears that he is not yet done.
This year, Anderson Silva returned to the Octagon and took part in a number of big fights, including one against Israel Adesanya and another against Jared Cannonier.
Unfortunately for 'The Spider', he lost both of the fights. In his last fight, he was unable to continue after a kick to his leg injured him. At the moment, it is not sure if Silva will be fighting again, however, what is sure is that even if he has to retire, it will be to a tidy sum of $18 Million, which makes him the 5th richest UFC fighter of 2019.
Anderson Silva Net Worth: $18 Million.
