GSP has a PPV percentage bonus built into his new contract that should boost his pay by another million at the very least when the PPV numbers come in. I’m not aware of BJ having a similar clause but he may be compensated with some type of significant locker room bonus to make the pay to the headliners somewhat equitable. The lower end numbers are improving, as only two fighters made less than five figures.
