UFC 250 was a big night at the office for several names, with one of those being the aforementioned Alex Caceres. While he hasn’t always been the most consistent of fighters, The Ultimate Fighter 12 star earned his six-figure payday with a nice win over young hopeful Chase Hooper.
Elsewhere on the UFC 250 card we saw some more big payouts, but given the ongoing talk surrounding how much UFC fighters earn with some of the biggest stars in the promotion voicing their opinion, it seems like we’re going to see even more scrutiny over these numbers in the weeks and months to come.
The UFC will be well aware of the issue at hand but given the viewing figures they’ve been receiving lately, there’s a good chance they aren’t going to worry all too much.
