UFC 187 Salaries

These do not include fight night bonuses.



A fight between Rose Namajunas and Nina Ansaroff was called off at the last minute when Ansaroff became ill. After receiving 20 percent of Ansaroff's purse as a penalty, Namajunas pocketed $52,000 without fighting. Ansaroff earned $8,000.


The salary numbers came out as fighter pay remains a hot topic in MMA circles. A recent deal between the UFC and Reebok has come under fire as some fighters have claimed that their take-home pay will go down as part of the deal.

Full UFC 187 payout numbers are as follows:

Daniel Cormier: $180,000 (including $90,000 win bonus)
Anthony Johnson: $500,000

Chris Weidman: $500,000 (including $250,000 win bonus)
Vitor Belfort: $300,000

Donald Cerrone: $152,000 (including $76,000 win bonus)
John Makdessi: $30,000

Andrei Arlovski: $84,000 (including $42,000 win bonus)
Travis Browne: $60,000

Joseph Benavidez: $106,000 (includes $53,000 win bonus)
John Moraga: $28,000

John Dodson: $40,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus)
Zach Makovsky: $19,000

Dong Hyun Kim: $116,000 (includes $58,000 win bonus)
Josh Burkman: $45,000

Rafael Natal: $70,000 (includes $35,000 win bonus)
Uriah Hall: $14,000

Colby Covington: $24,000 (includes $12,000 win bonus)
Mike Pyle: $51,000

Islam Makhachev: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
Leo Kuntz: $10,000

Justin Scoggins: $30,000 (includes $15,000 win bonus)
Josh Sampo: $13,000
The fighters he's beaten aren't even household names in their own household.

"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god."
