UFC 224 Promotional Guidelines Compliance Payouts

Amanda Nunes

The octagon returned to Rio de Janairo, Brazil last night for the promotions UFC 224 pay-per-view event.

The thirteen-bout fight card was headlined by a women’s bantamweight title fight featuring current champion Amanda Nunes defending her title against surging contender Raquel Pennington.

“The Lioness” would utilize some heavy low kicks to soften up “Rocky”, before eventually putting Pennington away with ground and pound in round five.

For her efforts, Nunes received an event high $40,000 in UFC Promotional Guidelines Compliance.

The UFC Promotional Guidelines Compliance program includes outfitting requirements, media obligations and other items under the fighter code of conduct. The program recently replaced the previous UFC Athlete Outfitting payouts.
