Complete list of UFC 207 payouts

January 1, 2017

The Nevada Athletic Commission has released the full roster of payouts from Friday night’s UFC 207.  The total reported pay for the UFC 207 was $4,683,000.

Via MMA Junkie:

Champ Amanda Nunes: $200,000 (includes $100,000 win bonus)
def. Ronda Rousey: $3 million

Champ Cody Garbrandt: $200,000
def. Dominick Cruz: $350,000

T.J. Dillashaw: $200,000 (includes $100,000 win bonus)
def. John Lineker: $43,000

 

Dong Hyun Kim: $134,000 (includes $67,000 win bonus)
def. Tarec Saffiedine: $40,000

Ray Borg: $30,600+ (includes $18,000 win bonus)
def. Louis Smolka: $37,400+

Neil Magny: $114,000* (includes $47,000 win bonus)
def. Johny Hendricks: $80,000*

Antonio Carlos Junior: $42,000 (includes $21,000 win bonus)
def. Marvin Vettori: $12,000

Alex Garcia: $36,000 (includes $18,000 win bonus)
def. Mike Pyle: $55,000

Niko Price: $24,000 (includes $12,000 win bonus)
def. Brandon Thatch: $22,000

Tim Means: $35,000 (no win bonus since fight ended in a no-contest)
vs. Alex Oliveira: $28,000 (no win bonus since fight ended in a no-contest)

As noted, by Junkie, Hendricks forfeited 20% of his purse ($20,000) for not making weight and Ray Borg forfeited 30% ($5,400) of his purse for not making weight.  The percentages were based on the amount that they were over.

Payout Perspective:

Rousey earned a bulk of the disclosed payout with her $3 million salary.  It should be noted that Oliveira may want to appeal the decision not to award a win bonus due to the failure to interpret the rules correctly.  Hendricks’ failure to make weight is another sign that he may have to recalibrate his training.  He did look better in his fight with Magny but his issues with cutting weight a a continued problem.

    i hope nunes got ppv points, way underpaid for this fight, and utterly destroyed danas favorite fighter

  2. d on January 2nd, 2017 8:01 AM

    All UFC champs get ppv points. It is written into their contract. I doubt it was anywhere near what Rousey got though.

  3. numero on January 2nd, 2017 8:02 AM

    any idea what the ppv stats were?

  4. Jason Cruz on January 2nd, 2017 9:22 AM

    Still early but 5M google searches for “Ronda Rousey fight” could mean a big PPV number…or people searching online for the fight since they heard it was very short.

  5. TOPS E on January 2nd, 2017 11:30 AM

    Low paying promotion hahaha

  6. numero on January 2nd, 2017 11:38 AM

    thanks. how is the information disclosed – is it something that can only come from the UFC themselves?

  7. turd on January 2nd, 2017 12:13 PM

    numero they are very secretive about how much they actually pay fighters who get ppv points, in fact ive never heard them actually say what they pay a fighter, with ppv points and from what i read, the ppv points vary from fighter to fighter.

  8. numero on January 2nd, 2017 12:42 PM

    thanks. I heard chael sonnen saying that dana did that to protect the fighters (not revealing their purse). he said that dana has received a great deal of flack for this and in turn is viewed as the “bad guy”. sonnen actually praised dana for being the opposite. apparently this was dana’s response from viewing the boxing industry. when boxers pay was disclosed they ended up being expected to pay the tab for family/friends meals, be the goto guy for “borrowing” money etc. i.e. it ended up harming the fighter big time. personally i believe that theory.

  9. Fight Fan on January 2nd, 2017 1:19 PM

    Dana just doesn’t want people seeing how much they treat the fighters like modern day slaves. If a fighter can’t manage their money that’s on them. Every other sport shows the money. That’s the difference with ufc though, they’re a league and do whatever they want.

  10. d on January 2nd, 2017 1:29 PM

    Numero, that is misleading because boxing promotions do not disclose ppv points. They release the same information that the UFC or any other mma promotion does which is only what is required by state athletic commissions.

    Also, if you were asking where we get ppv numbers from- Dave Meltzer is considered the expert and releases the figures after the events. They usually take about a week to get an intro estimate.

  11. d on January 2nd, 2017 1:30 PM

    FF, no, they are not a league and no, boxing does not release their financials. That is fiction you continue to pathetically attempt to peddle.

  12. d on January 2nd, 2017 1:31 PM

    Hey Tops,

    Rousey will make more money for this fight than any boxer will this year for any fight.

  13. Fight Fan on January 2nd, 2017 1:57 PM

    Canelo made 15 mil for his fight against Khan. No way Rousey is making that lol. As usual you don’t know your stuff

  14. d on January 2nd, 2017 2:10 PM

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! He wishes he made 15m. Your problem is you listen to crony boxing promoters who throw out fictitious figures. His actual purse was 3.5m and with a ppv buyrate of around 350k buys, and one legit tv contract, good luck finding a way to get anywhere near 15m.

    Rousey on the other hand most likely had big ppv numbers. I would imagine this did at least 800k buys. She without question made over 10m for this fight.

    As usual I know my stuff and you present fake figures.

  15. numero on January 2nd, 2017 2:53 PM

    appreciate the clarification d. i’ve seen the excellent compilation of UFC ppv on this website. looks like a comprehensive list until 202. is there any information on ppv numbers, even approximations, for 203->206?

  16. d on January 2nd, 2017 3:02 PM

    UFC 203

    425-475k buys

    http://mmapayout.com/2016/09/ufc-203-ppv-buys-estimated-between-425k-475k/

    UFC 204

    290k

    https://www.reddit.com/r/MMA/comments/57cbaw/meltzer_estimates_ufc_204_at_300000_buys/

    I can’t find anything on 205 yet because I don’t believe Meltzer released any numbers on it yet.

    206 is too early to have any figures. May be by the end of the week.

    206 had 150k buys according to this site. Lol

  19. lol on January 2nd, 2017 6:36 PM

    Lol, this site hilarious. One of the only places where Boxing fans clash with MMA fans, in a comment section, in an MMA site lol.

  20. lol on January 2nd, 2017 6:43 PM

    ‘Guess it has to do with the Boxing reporting it also does. Anyway, it’s a funny topic and concept.

    Are you seriously laughing at a UFC ppv buy number? That beats almost every boxing ppv and it is the lowest UFC figure for the year.

  23. d on January 2nd, 2017 11:13 PM

    FF, of course you refused to try to respond when I pointed out your lies with your bs Canelo payout. Haha. You had to take on a new argument.

  24. mmaguru on January 3rd, 2017 5:59 AM

    UFC 205 did about 1.3 million PPV buys
    UFC 206 will land around 175K with rerun buys
    UFC 207 is predicting around 675K maybe a tad less or a tad more

  25. mmaguru on January 3rd, 2017 6:01 AM

    Meltzer’s numbers may be more trust-able than Abrum, but are usually a +/- 20% range

  26. fight fan on January 3rd, 2017 7:19 AM

    D you’re delusional as always, not to mention Khan made over 1O mil with his tv rights. Show me Ronda’s check for that much lol

  27. d on January 3rd, 2017 8:45 AM

    “UFC 205 did about 1.3 million PPV buys

    Just like I asked you last time….source?

    “Meltzer’s numbers may be more trust-able than Abrum, but are usually a +/- 20% range”

    Where are you getting this from about Meltzer? Also, even if this was true, if anything it would probably be on the higher end because his figures do not include streaming numbers.

  28. d on January 3rd, 2017 8:49 AM

    “D you’re delusional as always, not to mention Khan made over 1O mil with his tv rights. Show me Ronda’s check for that much lol”

    Hahaha. Great response. I prove that those numbers are false and you just come back with saying no it isn’t, basically.

    Why don’t you show me Khan’s check? I can show you Khan’s disclosed figure, which was 2m- kind of difficult to deny this too considering it was required information released to the Nevada Athletic Commission. Also, you are insane if you believe he made 8m from a BOXNation tv deal. Hahaha. They don’t get ad revenue anywhere near that to support figures in that area. He probably made about 3m for that fight.

  29. numero on January 3rd, 2017 12:18 PM

    this is great, appreciate the figures d & mmaguru.

  30. TOPS E on January 3rd, 2017 1:34 PM

    Hahahaha…d destructing…all by lonesome.fanboys still in shock thinking about reality,2015 record was rousey and mcgregor….4 billion down..tv deal near,without the 2 less leverage for the ufc with the tv deal,fed regulators would be proven right hahahaha

  31. TOPS E on January 3rd, 2017 1:38 PM

    Dw hugged rousey for 45 minutes…..desperate really desperate hahahaha

  32. TOPS E on January 3rd, 2017 1:40 PM

  33. d on January 3rd, 2017 7:37 PM

    Tops forgot his meds apparently.

  34. TOPS E on January 3rd, 2017 9:26 PM

    Will rousey appretiate the booger comment? Hahaha

  35. d on January 7th, 2017 1:30 AM

    With 1.1m ppv buys, that’s a ton of ppv money for Rousey.

    Where you at FF?

Got something to say?
