Colby Covington is one of the most outspoken and controversial fighters in UFC history, but what is his net worth for 2021?
The American MMA fighter has an impressive resume inside the octagon, including his winning of the UFC Welterweight Championship by defeating Tyron Woodley.
Here’s everything you need to know about Covington and just how much the mixed martial artist is worth.
Covington has a range of different endorsements, including Reebok, My Bookie, Alienware and Bang Energy.
Part of the appeal of Covington is his “heel” persona, which he revealed to BT Sport actually helped to ‘save’ his career and keep him relevant across a stacked UFC roster.
He said: “I knew I needed to make a change. I was already on my 3rd UFC contract and they weren’t ever upping my contract like they were just saying ‘ Oh you are just gonna go up to this contract.
“There is no negotiation period, you are just gonna take what we give you because we don’t like you, you’re not a character.
“None of the fans care about your fighting style. No one cares about your personality, so I knew I needed to make a change. I had to do something that was going to get the fans involved. Make it a circus cause this is the circus business.
“I knew I had to make a change and I had to do something drastic that was going to get the fans and everybody hyped up and that is what I did. Whether you hate me or you love me, you are going to tune in to watch me.”
Colby Covington Net Worth
Covington reportedly has a net worth of around $2 million US dollars, according to Celebrity net worth.
This takes into account Covington’s current UFC deal, his endorsements and notoriety in the sports as a highly ranked Welterweight fighter.
If Covington were to win another Championship in the company, his net worth would likely go up again.
Covington as the top Welterweight in the UFC would mean that he could earn more endorsement deals, get more publicity and potentially appear on more mainstream programming to sell his brand and “heel” persona.
