Jordan Wright's Net Worth and UFC Salary

Relatively unknown MMA fighters are generally known to receive guaranteed money ranging from $10,000 to $15,000 for showing up. These figures get doubled when they win the bouts. In addition, they also have the opportunity to cash in sponsorship money (stipend) which usually is any amount between $3,500 to $5,000. There's also the performance bonus, the fight of the night bonus, and knock-out of the night bonus.

These amounts differ significantly for A-list fighters like McGregor, Nurmagomedov, Poirier, and such. However, the majority of MMA fighters have been reported to making, at least, six figures annually.

Given that Wright's combined earnings from his fights and wins (exclusively) could be estimated at around $220,000. His career allowances from sponsorships should have brought him about $40,000-$50,000 (at the minimum). All in all, Wright's net worth conceivably may be in the zone of $300,000 to $400,000 considering all the aforesaid analysis.
