Jorge Masvidal Career Earnings In UFC And Strikeforce

Jorge Masvidal’s earnings between the UFC and Strikeforce are very impressive.

Masvidal, 34, began his fighting career brawling in backyards. It was that innate toughness that led to him becoming one of the toughest and most beloved stars in the UFC.

The Miami-bred brawler made his professional kickboxing debut in 2003 at Fast and Fearless.

His most notable early victory and the one that arguably put him on the map came in 2005 at Absolute Fighting Championships XII, when he defeated Joe Lauzon

Lauzon had come into the match-up undefeated with eight wins and no losses. He would go on to also have a very long and successful UFC career.

And thus the public was introduced to the fighter who would ultimately come to hold the record for fastest knockout in UFC history.

Now, with more than a decade of fighting experience under his belt, he is finally getting the sort of paydays you would expect for a guy of his caliber.

In his most recent dominant victory over Ben Askren he made $265,000. If his next bout ends up being against Nate Diaz, he will likely make north of that.

If ultimately ends up defeating Diaz and then subsequently fighting for the welterweight championship of the world, it would be fair to assume that he will likely come away with the biggest and most impressive payday of his career.
