Mario's UFC Earnings
Mario Bautista recently joined the MMA and has a long way to go before he starts raking in thousands of dollars from the UFC. When Mario won the fight against Jin Soo Son, he received a cash prize of thousands of dollars, including a win bonus.
So far, his disclosed UFC career fighting earnings is $50,000, a tiny fraction of what Michael Bisping, Anderson Silva, and Donald Cerrone earn. 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.
Mario Bautista would be paid a good amount if he won the fight against Miles John on February 9 at UFC 247.
