Anti-Trust Lawsuit Docs Reveal That Brock Lesnar Could've Earned Over $1 Million Per Fight In The UFC

An anti-trust lawsuit has been filed against the UFC by former fighters who used to compete in the Octagon.

Hal J. Singer, who is an expert witness of the Plaintiff's, revealed documents that show the huge amounts of money that former UFC Heavyweight Champion and former WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar may have made while fighting for the promotion.

Bloody Elbow has obtained these documents, with the first showing that Lesnar allegedly made $750,000 when competing in non-title bouts, with the exact language of said document shown below:

“For each and every Bout, in which Fighter participates where he is not recognized as a UFC Champion, by Zuffa, within thirty (30) days following the completion of each Bout, as contemplated in Section 7.1 (c) of the Promotional Agreement, Zuffa shall pay to DEATHCLUTCH, via bank wire or check, the amount of Three Hundred Seventy Five Thousand Dollars (US $375,000.00), less all permissible or required deductions and withholdings. Within sixty (60) days following the completion of each Bout, as contemplated in Section 7.1 (c) of the Promotional Agreement, Zuffa shall pay to DEATHCLUTCH, via bank wire or check, the additional amount of Three Hundred Seventy Five Thousand Dollars (US $375,000), less all permissible or required deductions and withholdings for a total combined payment of Seven Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars (US $750,000.00).”

While Lesnar netted under $1 million for non-title bouts, it couldn’t be any more different when the fighter competed in title fights, as the next document shows that Lesnar could’ve made over a million dollar per championship encounter:

“...an agreement with Brock Lesnar that specifies lump sums to be paid conditional on champion status (“For each and every Bout, in which Fighter participates where he is recognized as a UFC Champion by Zuffa, within thirty (30) days following the completion of each Bout, as contemplated in Section 7.1 (a) of the Promotional Agreement Zuffa shall pay to DEATHCLUCTH, via bank wire or check, the amount of Eight Hundred Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Dollars (US $812,500.00), less permissible or required deductions and withholdings. Within sixty (60) days following the completion of each Bout, as contemplated in Section 7.1 (a) of the Promotional Agreement, Zuffa shall pay to DEATHCLUTCH, via bank wire or check, the additional amount of Eight Hundred Twelve Thousand Five Hundred Dollars (US $812,500.00), less all permissible or required deductions and withholdings, for a total combined payment of One Million Six Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars (US $1,625,000.000).”

Lesnar had two separate runs in the UFC, starting with UFC 81 in February of 2008 and ending with UFC 200 in July of 2016. Bloody Elbow states that if the passages from the anti-trust lawsuit are accurate, it could mean that Lesnar could’ve netted $7,875,000 during his UFC tenure, but that doesn’t include bonuses or any additional revenue from pay-per-view sales.
