The MMA Fighter Brendan Loughnane's net worth as he prepares $1m PFL final fight.

The 32-year-old will square off against an American fighter Bubba Jenkins on November 25 at the PFL World Championships venue at Madison Square Garden in New York. 

The championship's decisive match is a winner-take-all match, and the prize pool for that match is one million dollars. The winner of that match will not only add a name and renown to his glory, but he will also take home that $1m reward.

If Loughnane was successful in winning that game and taking home the one million dollar prize, then there is no doubt that his net worth would see a significant spike as a result.

PFL CEO Pete Murray is delighted by Brendan's performance and wishes him all the best in winning the battle on Friday. "Brendan is a warrior, and you saw what he is capable of in his last fight."

His tenacity and persistence were clearly displayed, and as a result, the MMA star now has the opportunity to win one million dollars in the 2022 PFL World Championship.

Brendan Loughnane Net Worth

If Brendan Loughnane prevails in the PFL final, that will result in a sizeable increase in his net worth.

The 32-year-old MMA fighter Loughnane is all set to be a millionaire and is in full wing preparation for the November 25 Professional Fighters League's final showdown battle against Bubba Jenkins.

His tenacity and persistence were clearly on display, and as a result, Loughnane now has the opportunity to win one million dollars in the 2022 PFL World Championship.

Brendan will now compete against another American, Bubba Jenkins, 34, for the PFL heavyweight title, and a victory would award him a $1 million prize check which can change his life forever.

His opportunity to compete for a million dollars comes at a time when mixed martial arts in the United Kingdom (MMA) is experiencing a period of unprecedented success.

Leon Edwards of Birmingham recently won the UFC welterweight belt, making him only the second English champion in the sport's most prestigious promotion after Michael Bisping of Clitheroe.

The 32-year-old fighter, who the UFC had previously rejected, has now advanced to the featherweight final, which will take place on November 25. There, he will compete against Bubba Jenkins for the chance to become a millionaire.

Although many may think Brendan is too old and far off his best years to make an impact, he has been proving them wrong. Bubba Jenkins, his PFL final competitor, has a net worth of around $6 million. If he continues his recent form, Loughnane can still make decent money and a noticeable net worth.

Brendan Loughnane Criticizes MMA Fighters Pay And Earnings

Brendan Loughnane said MMA fighters are not getting paid well, and their earnings are still a matter of debate.

The Manchester homegrown is not a fan of how MMA fighters earn less money and are underpaid and overworked athletes. Brendan, the rising PFL star, said in April last year that fighters are consistently paid less than how much they work.

The amount of work to compensation ratio is not even. And this is the second time an MMA fighter has complained about the pay scale in the industry. Recently, renowned fighters have said that they are broke while fighting for UFC, the leading entity in the world, which is valued at $6 billion.

He even likened the payouts to those made in other sports, such as football, baseball, and basketball, in which players earn millions of dollars each year.

Anthony Pettis, a former UFC champion, has stated that fighters do not feel comfortable talking about their pay with other MMA fighters because they are embarrassed to do so and do not want to say anything about it because of how little they make.

Brendan Loughnane, who is set to clash for $1 million in the PFL Featherweight World Championship this Friday, revealed his first-ever earnings as a fighter was £150 when he made his bout debut in 2008.

And he pointed out there has been little increase in payment compared to other sports. Loughnane's issue was that he was not given an increase in his salary when the postseason began, even though he had already been paid for the previous two rounds of the playoffs.

According to MMA Fighting, Brendan Loughnane is among the highest-paid MMA fighter, with his earnings ranging from $150,000 to $170,000. Likewise, his PFL final American combatant Bubba Jenkins makes $98,000 a year.

Because the vast majority of sports commissions no longer see the need to disclose payment details to the public, salaries are only rarely made accessible to people these days.

Similarly, Kayla Harrison, the highest-paid female PFL fighter at the moment, makes $124,850 a year from professional bouts, which are very minimal compared to other sports.
