How much did Brock Lesnar make in 2010?
Mike Chiappetta has done the math.
According to ESPN Magazine, former WWE champion Brock Lesnar made $5.3 million for the two fights he participated in during 2010. That number, however, is more than $800,000 off from the final figure estimated by MMA Fighting.
Using the formula the UFC released at the time, Lesnar would have made just less than $2.5 million for UFC 121, and just over $2.8 million for UFC 116 just in pay-per-view bonuses. Add in his $400,000 base salary for each event, as well as a $75,000 Submission of the Night bonus for his win over Shane Carwin, and Lesnar pulled in $6,170,000, according to MMA Fighting estimates.
