Five Fighters Make Six Figures At UFC 236

While only one of them would walk out with the win, Interim UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, led the disclosed payroll for last weekend’s UFC 236, with both men making $350,000 for a night’s work.

Released on Monday by the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission, the two fighters would be followed by Kelvin Gastelum ($150,000), new interim lightweight champion Dustin Poirier ($250,000) and Nikita Krylov, as the only six-figuer earners on Saturday night.

Poirier, Holloway, Adesanya, and Gastelum also took home $50,000 fight night bonuses for their performances at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
