Kailin Curran: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Emily Kagan: $10,000

The total disclosed payroll for the event was $702,000.

Payout Perspective:

Northcutt is ascending up the UFC pay roster quickly at $40K/$40K in just his second fight for the company.  Paige VanZant appears to be there as well as she made $40K in a losing effort.  Rose Namajunas made the second-most overall with $54K total.  It will be interesting to see where Aljamain Sterling goes from here as he made $14K/$14K in his last fight on his UFC contract.  He’s looking to improve on this with his next contract.  Will the UFC be the place?

    $80k?
    I heard from D that he makes like $10M a fight in back room bonuses though

    Those last two 1m plus ppvs really burned, didn’t they? HAHAHAHA!

    It cant really burn when it never happened and you got a ppv in boxing that just did under 5M ppv buys.

    No we’ll just keep making more money, selling more ppvs, having bigger gates, and breaking records.
    But Im glad it took two former boxers for the UFC to get over 1M ppv buys, supposedly.

    Boxing fans were self destructing when the reality of two big 1m plus ppv’s for the UFC came in back to back and there new star can only hit 900k with another ppv fighter.

    The word “we” gets thrown around very loosely here apparently.

    Both fights involved zero former boxers as the A headliners. MMA on fire!!!!!!!!!

    Also lol at you thinking boxing fans care about a smaller less lucrative sport.
    Most boxing fans are laughing that back to back ppvs were dominated by boxers.
    It ended the boxing vs mma argument.
    Two boxers headlined the biggest UFC ppvs of the year. Go figure.

    Why don’t you go mention Mayweathers name for some more publicity.

    Maybe if you added another exclamation point, we’d believe you.
