Erin Blanchfield's Net worth and Earnings
A relatively unknown talent prospect, Blanchfield's net worth hasn't grabbed much attention from the media. Also, amateur fighters often have little to no say in the matter of earnings from their fight. Nevada State Athletic Commission stresses amateur fighters are allowed to get expenses covered by the promotion, but cannot be directly compensated for competing in the event. Lack of pay distinguishes and thereby protects amateurs from the highly experienced competition.
However, no one can deny the theory that the 21-year-old has walked away with series of prize money. When she won the Eddie Bravo Invitational (EBI) tournament, Blanchfield had received a purse of $20,000.
And now that she is a UFC fighter, Blanchfield will sure have different other avenues to get the money in her bank. Base pay, winning bonuses, performance bonuses, portions of ticket sales, and even sponsorships - UFC hardly dissatisfies its fighters when it comes to monetary compensations. Blanchfield can also be seen promoting several brands on her fight gear.
