That guarantee is $1.5 million more than Conor McGregor’s previously record of $1 million at UFC 196. Lesnar is reportedly earning close to $6 million per year in WWE, so it makes sense that UFC had to pull out all the stops to get him. With reports rolling in that his match against Hunt set UFC PPV buy records, this is likely money well spent.
Brock Lesnar's purse tonight is $2.5 million
