Usman Leads TUF 28 Salaries

On Friday night at the 28th finale of The Ultimate Fighter, Kamaru Usman would not only get a main event win over Rafael dos Anjos, but a major payday for scoring the win.

In information sent to FIGHT SPORTS on Monday, Usman would walk out with $75,000 for showing up to the Palms in Las Vegas and another $75,000 for his unanimous decision victory over the former lightweight champion in Usman’s ninth consecutive win for the UFC.

For his effort inside the Octagon, dos Anjos would earn $110,000 with no bonus.

The only other fighter to make more than $100,000 was Joseph Benavidez, who would earn $73,000 for showing and another $73,000 for his win over Alex Perez.

Benavidez and Usman joined Juan Espino and Roosevelt Roberts in earning a $50,000 performance bonus for their work on November 30th.
