On a quest to find out which UFC fighter earned a $5 million payday, Jon Jones and Brock Lesnar were taken out the running.

In an interview yesterday with SciFighting.com, UFC President Dana White said that neither former heavyweight champ Lesnar and current light heavyweight champ Jones were the fighter that scored the $5 million paycheck for one fight.

It’s not as though the list of fighter who earned that much money is a long one, though. White has said in the past that he’s made millionaires out of about 30 fighters, so this only cuts the list down by two.

White did say, however, that the fighter that earned that glorious check is still an active UFC fighter. He wouldn’t say who the fighter is, of course, because “it’s just nobody’s business how much money they make.”

Who do you, GRACIEMAG reader, think the owner of that big payday is? Let us know in the comment section below.
