Net Worth and UFC Earnings
Juan Adams recently joined the MMA and has a long way to go before he starts raking in thousands of dollars from the UFC. When Adams won the fight against Chris De La Rocha, he received $24,000 in cash prize, including a $12,000 win bonus.
So far, his estimated UFC career fighting earnings is $58,000. He earned this amount UFC 246 and onward. Also, this is only the reported salary plus fight of the night, knockout of the night and submission of the night bonuses. This data can still be considered very close to his actual earnings, as most fighters’ earnings remain somewhat predictable from fight to fight unless they sign a new contract in the meantime.
Juan might be paid a good amount while he faces Justin at UFC 247.
