Jon Jones UFC Career Earnings

Jon Jones has been a professional MMA fighter since he made his debut back in 2008 on the undercard of a FFP: Untamed 20 undercard in Massachusetts. Jones had an incredible seven fights in his opening year as a pro MMA fighter, with the last of them being his debut in the UFC.

The 35-year-old has seemingly earned far more money since signing for the UFC up until his latest fight back in 2020 against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in Houston, Texas. Sponsorship deals with various global brands has earned Jones an absolute fortune outside of the octagon too. Up until 2014, ‘Bones’ was a Nike athlete and has had various different sponsors since then too.

The biggest paycheque of Jones’ career to date came back at UFC 214 in his rematch with bitter rival Daniel Cormier back in 2017. He supposedly earned somewhere in the region of $2 million for that fight, which is the biggest purse of his UFC career so far. However, since his move up to heavyweight, Jones is set to earn well over triple that at UFC 285 for his fight with Ciryl Gane.

With his long and successful career in the UFC, this means that Jon Jones’ total career earnings inside the octagon equates to roughly $15 million. This is far lower than a lot of other fighters in the UFC such as Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov and George St-Pierre to name but a few.

However, now that Jones is campaigning up at heavyweight, his paycheques will massively inflate. If he does become a two-weight UFC champion this weekend, then he will continue to earn millions of dollars in the ‘money’ division as a UFC heavyweight.
