Jacob Rosales ($1,500 + $1,500 = $3,000) def. Mike Segura ($1,500)

Payout Perspective:

Henderson’s last reported UFC payout was in January 2015 when he made $48,000 in a loss to Donald Cerrone.  He did make more as the lightweight champion.  At UFC 164, when he lost his belt to Anthony Pettis, he made $110,000.  The $75,000 with no win bonus is a likely step up from his UFC pay at the time he left in November 2015.
