Justin Gaethje Career Earnings In UFC

Justin Gaethje career earnings in the UFC total up to more than $1.6 million.

Gaethje, 30, is widely regarded as one of the most exciting fighters in all of mixed martial arts (MMA).

His first legitimate bout came at World Series Of Fighting’s WSOF 2 event, where he defeated Gesias Cavalcante in the first round by TKO.

The victory solidified Gaethje as a real up-and-comer and gave fans a taste of what was to come.

From March 23, 2013 to December 2, 2017, Gaethje went undefeated.

Along the way he captured the WSOF in a win over Richard Patishnock and went on to defend it five times.

Ultimately, Gaethje decided to take his talents to the UFC.

Once in the UFC, Gaethje debuted with a bang when he beat Michael Johnson at The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption Finale.

From there, Gaethje suffered a bit of disappointment when he was finished by Eddie Alvarez at UFC 218 and then again at UFC on Fox: Poirier vs. Gaethje when he was beaten by Poirier.

After that, things sort of began to return to normal.

At UFC Fight Night: Gaethje vs. Vick, Gaethje destroyed the competition en route to proving he was no pushover.

A year later, he agreed to fight on UFC on ESPN: Barboza vs. Gaethje.

Gaethje ultimately beat his opponent Barboza and earned himself a shot at Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone this coming weekend.
