Last Saturday’s UFC 170 event delivered for a number of reasons.
For one, the UFC got itself out of that decision slump it was in.
Also, the fights were exciting and the evening was chock-full of fantastic fight finishes.
For their efforts the athletes who took center stage at UFC 170 combined for a total earning of $843,000.00.
While she may have headlined the pay-per-view event, Ronda Rousey, wasn’t the evening’s cash hog. That designation goes to Daniel Cormier who took home a whopping $160,000 for his first round destruction of Pat Cummins. Rousey came up in second with an even $110,000.000.
