Payout Perspective:

Reyes and Kim, the two lowest, reported paid fighters earned a Fight of the Night bonus.  Henderson’s $800,000 ($600,000 show, $200,000 win) is one of the highest-reported salaries for a UFC fighters.  His last official reported purse was at UFC 173 where he made $100,000 in a loss to Daniel Cormier.  Including the Cormier fight, he has gone 2-3 since then.  Aside from Conor McGregor’s purported salary, Anderson Silva has made $600K/$200K.  Also, Dominick Cruz earned $350,000 which is a considerable boost from winning the title this past January.  At UFC Fight Night 81, Cruz earned $110,000 ($55K/$55K).
