How much did Brock Lesnar earn for his last two UFC fights?


Brock Lesnar, the former UFC heavyweight champion, made over $11 million for his last two fights in the Octagon. Lesnar (5-3, 1 no contest MMA) fought Mark Hunt at UFC 200 in July of 2016, and won by unanimous decision. However, the result was changed to a no contest after Lesnar tested positive for clomiphene, a banned substance. Lesnar earned $8,000,000 for that fight.


Before that, Lesnar faced Alistair Overeem, the former Strikeforce and Dream heavyweight champion, at UFC 141 in December of 2011. Lesnar lost by first round TKO, but still made $3,000,000.


The documents were obtained by BloodyElbow.


The payouts for Lesnar’s final two UFC fights were revealed in court documents from the anti-trust lawsuit against the UFC by former fighters.


Lesnar went back to the WWE after his fight with Hunt, and became the Universal Champion. There are rumors that Lesnar might come back to the UFC for UFC 300 in April of 2023, a historic event that could feature Conor McGregor as the main event. However, nothing has been confirmed yet.
