UFC on ESPN 1 payouts

Post by Primetyme199 » Sun Feb 24, 2019 6:18 pm

The Arizona Department of Gaming has disclosed the salaries from this past Sunday’s UFC on ESPN 1. Cain Velasquez was the top earner on the card.

Via MMA Fighting:

Francis Ngannou ($110,000 + $110,000 = $220,000) def. Cain Velasquez ($450,000)
Paul Felder ($46,000 + $46,000 = $92,000) def. James Vick ($65,000)
Cynthia Calvillo ($44,000 + $44,000 = $88,000) def. Cortney Casey ($50,000)
Kron Gracie ($27,000 + $25,000 = $52,000) def. Alex Caceres ($55,000)
Vicente Luque ($41,000 + $41,000 = $82,000) def. Bryan Barberena ($35,000)
Andre Fili ($37,000 + $37,000 = $74,000) def. Myles Jury ($36,000)
Aljamain Sterling ($70,000 + $70,000 = $140,000) def. Jimmie Rivera ($68,000)
Manny Bermudez ($14,000 + $14,000 = $28,000) def. Benito Lopez ($12,000)
Andrea Lee ($14,000 + $14,000 = $28,000) def. Ashlee Evans-Smith ($30,000)
Nik Lentz ($53,000 + $53,000 = $106,000) def. Scott Holtzman ($33,000)
Luke Sanders ($19,000 + $19,000 = $38,000) def. Renan Barao ($53,000)
Emily Whitmire ($12,000 + $12,000 = $24,000) def. Aleksandra Albu ($12,000)

Payout Perspective:

The Former UFC Heavyweight champion earned $450,000 in his return to the Octagon against Francis Ngannou who drew $110,000 and another $110,000 for his win to earn $220,000. Aljamain Sterling ($140,000) and Nik Lentz ($106,000) were the only other fighters clearing 6 figures not counting fight or performance bonuses or Reebok payouts.
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."
