Julian Marquez didn’t know how much he would be paid before UFC Vegas 40 (VIDEO)

pre-fight press conference, Marquez explained why money is not a priority for him.

“I never count for bonuses. I only count for wins,” said Marquez. “I am here to win. I kid you not, I didn’t even know how much I was going to spend for this fight. It’s a passion for me. Money is just extra. To exchange a certain amount of dollars to win, it just doesn’t belong.”

Julian Marquez is coming off back-to-back major victories

Marquez has a friendly personality outside the cage, but he has a killer inside. He earned a shot at the UFC after landing a brutal head kick during the 2017 season Dana White’s Contender Series.

If Marquez can make another impressive performance against Wright, he will more than likely earn another performance bonus check. But for them it is just a matter of securing one more victory.

UFC Vegas 40 will take place on October 16, 2021, live from UFC APEX in Las Vegas, NV. Follow FanSided with all your live news and highlights on-site.
