Her biggest paycheck came against Sara McMann, and as per Media Referee, her net worth is estimated to be around $1 Million. Pena has been in the UFC since 2013, she stacked up some amazing wins against the top-level contenders in her weight class, her fight against Valentina Shevchenko would have been her biggest paycheck but she lost that fight in the second round, and didn’t get any bonus.

Pena got the biggest win of her career against Amanda Nunes at UFC 269, she choked out the female G.O.A.T of MMA to become the undisputed UFC champion. Pena certainly enjoyed her championship reign, and that came with a lot of monetary benefits. Pena then lost her title to Nunes at UFC 277, and she is waiting to come back inside the octagon.
