Last Saturday night saw UFC 196 and some pretty epic fights and shocks. But despite their losses, Conor McGregor and Holly Holm still earned a ton. In fact, The Notorius made history by becoming the first man to earn a million dollar purse for a bout in UFC history. Even though he lost. But how much did all the others make that night…?
Well, a leaked list of all the wages from UFC 196 has hit the internet. And it makes for some fascinating reading… Here it is in full:
And on the rest of the card:
Ilir Latifi ($25,000 + $25,000 = $50,000) defeated Gian Villante ($36,000)
Corey Anderson ($20,000 + $20,000 = $40,000) defeated Tom Lawlor ($28,000)
Amanda Nunes ($28,000 + $28,000 = $56,000) defeated Valentina Shevchenko ($14,000)
So it clearly pays alright for one night’s work. Plus there are all the sponsorship opportunities and pay-per-view fees. You’ve just gotta work out if it’s worth all the punches and kicks to the head…
