How much does Georges St-Pierre earn per fight?
Whenever Georges St-Pierre fights, he makes millions of dollars. First off, GSP typically earns $200,000 just to show up plus and an additional $200,000 win bonus (assuming he wins). And while $400,000 is a nice chunk of money for a single night's work, GSP's real windfall comes from his stake in the fight's Pay Per View Sales. To understand just how much a fighter like GSP can earn off PPV sales, we can use Randy Couture's final UFC contract, which became public as part of a lawsuit, as a rough base for comparison:
Number of buys: Bonus
- Fewer than 100,000: No bonus
- 100,000 – 175,000: $1 per buy
- 175,000 – 300,000: $1.5 per buy
- 300,000 – 330,000: $2 per buy
- Over 330,000: $3 per buy
For UFC 158 back in March 2013, it is known that GSP earned $200,000 to show up plus a $200,000 win bonus, for total prize money of $400,000. UFC 158 was purchased by 950,000 people. Using the math above, GSP took home a minimum PPV bonus of $2.85 million. We say "minimum" because Dana White himself has stated that GSP's bonus for UFC 158 was actually closer to $5 million. So using those numbers as a range, Georges earned of $3.25 – $5.4 million off that one fight alone. And we haven't even talked about endorsements. Thanks to deals with companies like Under Armour, NOS energy drink (owned by Coca-Cola), Hayaboosa, 888poker, Affliction, Electronic Arts and Bacardi. These endorsements reportedly earn Georges an additional $1-2 million per fight. In total, Georges St-Pierre earns an estimated $12 – $15 million per year.
