Khabib Making BANK For UFC 242
After giving up half of his purse due to the infamous UFC 229 riot, Khabib Nurmagomedov will be sitting pretty after UFC 242 with his biggest payday to date.
Nurmagomedov defends his lightweight title on Saturday against Dustin Poirier and per his father and coach, Abdulmanap his sun will be making considerably more than the $2 million he made in 2018.
“This time, it [the purse] will be 3-3.5-fold higher,” Nurmagomedov told TASS this week.
“We aren’t fighting for peanuts and we know our value. That sum [of $2 million] is too little for us because we are the best at the moment. We have defeated the best and are ready to keep fighting with the best.”
