Stephen A. Smith’s outfit for UFC 264 that will go viral on social media tonight.
It’s been a remarkable week for the ESPN personality. Earlier in the week, details of Smith’s deal with leaders around the world leaked.
The New York Post had some details:
The Smith contract is for $ 12 million annually, according to sources. As The Post previously reported, Smith’s personal salary is $ 8 million per year – which is correct – but he also has a $ 4 million per year contract output.
This offsets the total contract he signed at the end of 2019 a five-year $ 60 million contract.
Smith’s deal isn’t the only thing trending on social media this week, though.
Saturday night, Smith appeared on the air in front of UFC 264. He was wearing the right outfit.

Many UFC fans don’t seem happy to have Smith in the show, but good luck making the ESPN personality less work.
Smith seems interested in being a part of basically everything ESPN put out these days. And at $ 12 million a year, ESPN is probably more than OK with that.
