Brock Lesnar is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the world thanks to his sheer dominance in both WWE and UFC. In fact, he earned a lot of money during his last UFC fights.

Although Brock Lesnar did big numbers for the UFC from 2008 to 2011, he made a lot more money in WWE. He left that UFC career behind him after returning to WWE in 2012. He was a brand-new Beast Incarnate, and although he did return to the Octagon in 2016 for a win over Mark Hunt, he hasn’t been back.

In 2011, Lesnar would duke it out with Alistair Overeem at UFC 141. Lesnar would be defeated by Overeem in the first round via TKO. After the match, Lesnar would announce his retirement from UFC.

According to a report from Bloody Elbow, Brock Lesnar was paid $3 million for the fight. Lesnar was paid $8 million for his fight with Mark Hunt in 2016, despite the fact that the result was overturned when Lesnar tested positive for a banned substance during a post-fight screening.


It is very unlikely The Beast Incarnate will ever return to the world of UFC as he is too old now and simply has no reason to test himself anymore. Therefore, fans have accepted he will never compete in the UFC ever again.
