Last weekend, the UFC touched down in Las Vegas, Nevada with UFC 219.
In the card’s main event, we watched Cris Cyborg defend her women’s featherweight title by out-duelling Holly Holm to a unanimous decision win. In the co-main event, meanwhile, we saw lightweight star Khabib Nurmagomedov extend his record to an insane 25-0, bludgeoning Edson Barboza to a unanimous decision win. Elsewhere on the main card, we saw Dan Hooker tap Mark Diakiese, Neil Magny outwork Carlos Condit, and Carla Esparza sneak by rising prospect Cynthia Calvillo.
Ahead of this card, we learned that Cris Cyborg would be earning a massive $500,000, win or lose, while Holm was set to pocket a guaranteed $300,000. Now the purses for the entire card have been revealed. As expected Cyborg and Holm led the way, though Khabib Nurmagomedov and Neil Magny also passed the $100,000 mark with their wins.
Here’s a rundown of the UFC 219 salaries (via MMAFighting.com).
