Who’s made more? Israel Adesanya or Jorge Masvidal?

Winner: MASVIDAL (barely)
Israel Adesanya Total MMA Recorded Fight Earnings: $4,553,500
Jorge Masvidal Total MMA Recorded Fight Earnings: $4,817,207

Masvidal has earned slightly more than Adesanya in his career but it is incredibly close despite Masvidal having more than double the amount of fights that Adesanya has had in the UFC (19 vs 9). Masvidal has likely earned some big PPV points with his recent fights but Adesanya remains one of the biggest draws in MMA right now. Its likely that Adesanya will soon pass Masvidal in career earnings.
