Cyborg and Holm top UFC 219 salaries

December 30, 2017

ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reports some of the purses for Saturday night’s UFC 219. Cristiane Justino will earn $500,000 while Holly Holm will make $300,000.

Both main event fighters will not receive a win bonus if they prevail. Although, the hefty show purses should compensate for the lack of a win bonus. Khabib Nurmogomedov will draw $80,000 and another $80,000 to win. Edson Barboza will earn $75,000 and $75,000 for a win.

Carlos Condit’s return will draw him $115,000 and $115,000 and his opponent Neil Magny will earn $70,000 and $70,000.

Cynthia Calvillo will earn $41,000/$41,000 and Carla Esparza will earn $36,000/$36,000.

Payout Perspective:

Cyborg’s last fight at UFC 214 drew $200,000 (no win bonus) against Tonya Evinger. Holm’s last reported fight purse was in March 2016 when she made $500,000 in a win against Miesha Tate. Since then, Holm has had 3 more fights and one might infer that she has not made as much since defending the title although I would surmise she’s made 6 figures in each of the last 3 fights. It’s likely that we’ll get the rest of the payouts after the event from the Nevada Athletic Commission.
