In the aftermath of UFC 200, we got some surprising news as to how much money Brock Lesnar made after his unanimous decision victory over Mark Hunt.

Chael Sonnen vs Anderson Silva 1 At UFC 117 Announced To Be Inducted Into The UFC Hall Of Fame

According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports, Lesnar’s purse was $2.5 million for the win. It is the biggest guaranteed payday for a fighter in UFC history. For a comparison, Conor McGregor held the previous record for guaranteed money after his UFC 196 match and that was only $1 million.

The $2.5 million does not include money that he will receive for pay-per-view sales, which many expect would be record setting numbers for the company.
