Stipe Miocic Career Earnings In UFC

Stipe Miocic career earnings in the UFC total up to more than $4.48 million.

Miocic, 37, is arguably the great heavyweight champion in UFC history.

His career in the world’s biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion began in 2011 when he defeated Joey Beltran by unanimous decision at UFC 136.

From there Miocic recorded two more wins before losing in shocking fashion to Stefan Struve by KO at UFC on Fuel TV: Struve vs. Miocic.

Miocic rebounded from that defeat by earning three more wins over the likes of Roy Nelson, Gabriel Gonzaga and Fábio Maldonado before losing to Junior Dos Santos in a five-round war that could have gone either way.

That loss would be Miocic’s last for four years.

After the Dos Santos bout, he went on to get wins over Mark Hunt and Andrei Arlovski en route to a title shot at Fabrício Werdum.

In front of a sellout Brazilian crowd at UFC 198, Miocic knocked Werdum out in the first round to capture the UFC Heavyweight championship of the world.

From there Miocic recorded three consecutive title defenses against Alistair Overeem, Dos Santos and Francis Ngannou before dropped the belt to Daniel Cormier at UFC 226.
