UFC 207 Fighter Salaries
Despite suffering a 48-second TKO loss, Ronda Rousey walked away with the biggest payday out of all fighters who competed at UFC 207.
As previously reported, Rousey walked away with a guaranteed $3 million for competing at the Las Vegas event on Friday night. The Nevada State Athletic Commission reported no win bonus was attached to Rousey’s agreement. This, of course, toppled her opponent’s pay night – Amanda Nunes, who retained the women’s bantamweight title — earned $200,000, $100,000 of which came from a win bonus.
As for the co-main event participants, Dominick Cruz earned more money than Cody Garbrandt, despite losing the men’s bantamweight title via unanimous decision to him. Cruz earned $350,000, while Garbrandt earned $200,000. Unlike Nunes, however, none of Garbrandt’s $200,000 came from a win bonus.
Like Nunes, T.J. Dillashaw also earned $200,000, with $100,000 coming from a win bonus.
