UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal has seen an incredible rise to fame. He was coasting among the has-beens in the lightweight division and was nothing more than a journeyman. However, he turned it all around and is now one of the most popular fighters in the entire world.

Masvidal is a rich man, and according to Celebrity Net Worth, he is with 6 million dollars. However, this figure is an understatement. Meanwhile, some other reports estimate his net worth at 10 million dollars and as far as 14 million dollars.

He also took home a hefty five hundred thousand dollars each for his fights against Nate Diaz and Kamaru Usman. However, he completely deserves it as his win over Nate Diaz for the BMF belt sold out the Madison Square Garden. His stock has only been on the rise since then, and he is slated to earn the same amount at the very least at UFC 261.

‘The Gamebred’ is challenging the welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman.

Usman is a very dominant champion and is on a 17 fight winning streak. He hasn’t lost a fight in the UFC and has never been taken down in the octagon. Masvidal needs to figure out how to keep the fight on the feet and finish the Nigerian champion.
