Alex Pereira Career Earnings
Ever since Alex Pereira signed for the UFC, he has gradually earned more money as his career has progressed. It is unknown exactly how much ‘Poatan’ made in his first four UFC fights, but he has certainly made some lucrative purses in his last four fights in the UFC.
For his middleweight bout at UFC 261 in November 2021, Pereira made a total of $154,000 for his knockout win over Andreas Michailidis. For his next fight against Bruno Silva, the Brazilian MMA superstar earned somewhere in the region of $104,000.
In his fight against Sean Strickland at UFC 276, Pereira earned in excess of $244,000. The biggest purse of Pereira’s career of course came in his last fight when he knocked out Israel Adesanya in the fifth round to become UFC Middleweight Champion at UFC 281. The 35-year-old is said to have earned an estimated $682,000 for his fight last November against ‘The Last Stylebender’.
Just inside the octagon and in his career as a professional fighter, Alex Pereira has earned a total of $4,899,000 according to theufcnews.com. This of course includes his earnings prior to joining the UFC.
In kickboxing, he was a former Glory middleweight and light heavyweight champion, and was the first and only fighter to have held Glory titles in two weight classes simultaneously. This of course is a huge part of why ‘Poatan’ has earned just short of $5 million in his career so far.
As previously mentioned, Pereira’s biggest purse did indeed come in his first fight against Adesanya last November. The fighting pride of Brazil was paid $682,000 for the fight in total. His base salary for the bout was around $300,000, with another $382,000 for winning the fight and a performance bonus.
Given the fact Pereira is now the UFC Middleweight Champion, his purse for this fight at UFC 287 in his rematch with Adesanya is set to earn him yet another career high pay-day. Should he win the fight and retain his title, ‘Poatan’ will almost certainly earn in excess of $1 million for the very first time in his entire career.
