UFC 207: Rousey Earns $3 Million Purse
She may not have done much media ahead of her UFC comeback, but Ronda Rousey will tie the highest disclosed purse in history at UFC 207. The former champion will reportedly earn $3 million in disclosed pay, which ties what Conor McGregor earned for his August rematch with Nate Diaz.
The figure was reported by a number of sources including Yahoo’s Kevin Iole:
#UFC207 purses: Ronda $3 million, Nunes 100/100, Garbrandt 200k, Cruz 350k, TJ 100/100 Lineker 43/43

Iole also reported that champion Amanda Nunes will earn $100K to fight and $100K to win. Dana White has stated that Nunes will receive a cut of the pay-per-view sales as well.
It is likely that Rousey will also receive a cut of the pay-per-view, unless her refusal to do media had an impact on her contract.
In the co-main, Dominick Cruz will earn $350K (and likely PPV points) and Cody Garbrandt will earn $200K.
