July 28, 2014 10:41 am by BJPENN.COM News

Robbie Lawler is coming off a win over Matt Brown this past Saturday at UFC on Fox 12. The fight earned him the right to fight Johny Hendricks for the welterweight title in a highly anticipated rematch.

What is most interesting about Lawler’s last 12 months however is the total earnings Lawler has. Taking a look at the last 12 months we see Lawler has earned $915,000, NOT including money from sponsors, as well as cuts he has received from PPV buys. Broken down fight by fight it looks like this:

vs Brown $210,000 plus $50,000 bonus (7/26/14) – won

vs Ellenberger $200,000 (5/24/14) – won

vs Hendricks $83,000 plus $50,000 bonus (3/15/14) – lost

vs McDonald $166,000 (11/16/13) – won

vs Voelker $156,000 (7/27/13) – won

Robbie Lawler has earned more in the past 12 months than most champions, including UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, featherweight champion Jose Aldo, bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw, lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, welterweight champion Johny Hendricks, middleweight champion Chris Weidman, and heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
