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
#4 B. J. Penn
B. J. Penn might be one of the most tragic UFC fighters of all time. Not because of his losses, and there were many of those, but because of the manner in which his time with the UFC ended this year.
Penn is an actor, an author, a coach, and a bonafide legend in the UFC. He held both the UFC Lightweight Championship and the UFC Welterweight Championship during his time with the company. He is one of the top fighters who helped to draw a lot of attention to the lower weight classes in UFC.
Unfortunately for Penn, he fought on for far longer than he should have. Between 2011 to 2019, he did not have a single win in his 7 fights, thus getting the rather unfortunate record for most consecutive losses in the history of UFC.
His personal life, however, has been far more tragic. Penn was involved in several bar fights and his wife also filed a restraining order against him citing physical and sexual abuse. He was involved in two brawls in 2019, with the latter one in August resulting in his release from the UFC.
However, in his long career, Penn has established a solid net worth of $22 Million.
