Retired UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal made a lot of dough in the leading MMA promotion.

As one of the biggest draws in the past few years, Masvidal served as the headliner in four of his five last outings. In a recent appearance at the “It Needed to Be Said” podcast, “Gamebred” revealed his biggest payday in the UFC.

“I’d say right around $5 million,” Masvidal said. “The UFC takes care of us to an extent with medicals, right? So, if anything happens to you at the fight or in preparation for the fight, we’re very well taken care of. And even after the fight, anything that happens in the gym, we’re very well taken care of. But we don’t have insurance outside of that like a dental plan, but anything related to fighting or training they take care of.”

Jorge Masvidal won the BMF title

The welterweight star never revealed which fight he made said numbers, but it’s quite possibly safe to assume that it was the BMF title bout win against Nate Diaz at UFC 244 in November 2019.

The massive event set the second best mixed martial arts gate record in New York and earned $6,575,996.19 in ticket sales, behind the previous record set at UFC 205 in November, 2016.

UFC 244 was also the UFC’s 500th live event.

Masvidal won the fight via TKO (doctor stoppage) before the start of the third round.
