What is Ciryl Gane's net worth? MMA star earned $353,500 from 5 UFC bouts
Ahead of the big clash against Alexander Volkov, here's how much Gane has earned in the past, thanks to his various UFC clashes
In a few days, Frenchman Ciryl Gane will take on Alexander Volkov in the much-anticipated UFC Fight Night bout. Since making his debut, Gane has gone on to become a hot name in the ring, so much so that he is now tipped by some to be a favorite against Volkov. That fame also comes with another great advantage - a huge fortune.
Boxers are known for their lavish lifestyles funded by the thousands they earn in the ring. Floyd Mayweather is estimated to be worth around $450 million. Others, while not worth as much, do boast an equally lavish lifestyle. American boxer Jermall Charlo's net worth is around $13 million, no wonder he has a mansion with four theatres. At the time of his passing in March 2021, Marvin Hagler was estimated to have a net worth of $45 million.
Clearly, boxing is a very lucrative sport. That brings us to Gane. Wondering how much the Frenchman has made in his short, but famous career? Well, here's the answer.
What is Ciryl Gane's net worth?
Like with all other celebrities and boxers, we can only estimate Gane's net worth. We don't really know how much he has actually earned, but thanks to some super-sleuths online we do have an idea. Playersbio estimated Gane to be worth around $3 to $4 million. We couldn't independently verify that. We do, however, have some information on how we amassed that fortune.
According to The Sports Daily, Gane has earned around $353,500 from his five Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bouts so far. He picked up $23,500 from UFC Fight Night: Shevchenko vs Carmouche. From the Maia vs Askren Fight Night, he earned $77,500. The UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs The Korean Zombie netted Gane $63,500, while he picked up $84,000 from UFC 256. The most recent UFC Fight Night: Rozenstruik vs Gane saw him earn $105,000.
This is just a rough estimate, based on what he earned for showing up, and a win bonus. He also earned a $3,5000 Fight Week incentive pay, which was upped to $5,000 for the February 2021 Fight Night. It's very likely he could have picked up a lot more from sponsorships, pay-per-view (PPV) deals, and other undisclosed bonuses. The UFC often runs "locker room" and other bonuses, which aren't disclosed to the public. Then there's also the amount he earns for endorsing footwear and apparel care brand DFNS. That too is undisclosed.
It's unclear where Gane spends his money as well. His personal life is quite private, and the few peeks we have got of it are usually through his Instagram and Twitter accounts. He doesn't seem very open on social media either, with almost all his posts either promoting a fight or his training. Not much is known about his assets, so it is very hard to determine if that estimate is accurate.
That said, it could be possible that the estimate is on the lower side. Gane is an incredibly popular boxer with a lot of wins under his belt, so he is likely to be worth a lot more than $4 million. As the main event for the June 26 UFC card, you can bet he is likely to make plenty more, even if he loses.
