Gregory Rodrigues Net Worth and Fight Purse
Details relating to Rodrigues's fight purses are yet to be disclosed yet considering the number of fights he has had, it should be reasonable to say the 29-year-old has amassed career earnings of more than $100,000 or so.
Taking his fame and career span into consideration, his base pay should easily be in the region of $10,000 - $20,000 per fight. It's worth noting that this figure gets doubled every time the fighters win the bout.
There's also the winning bonus, the fight of the night bonus, along with other stipends that more or less fuel the fortune of an octagon martial artist. With nine wins under his belt, Rodrigues might not be that far from the group of fighters who pull in six figures.
A title fight is something that brings you above average pay than a usual fight night and the Brazilian fighter's recent such match must have added a significant number to his net worth. Not to mention, his signing with the UFC is certain to facilitate him with more income avenues for the years to come.
