Both Sonnen and Jackson earned $300,000 each.  Sonnen, who defeated Jackson did not receive a win bonus. Rory MacDonald earned $100,000 in defeating Douglas Lima who also made $100,000.  MacDonald did not have a win bonus attached although he picked up a cryptocurrency sponsor.

Gabriel Green ($2,000 + $2,000 = $4,000) def. Christopher Padilla ($2,000)

Cooper Gibson ($2,000 + $2,000 = $4,000) def. Andrew Lazo ($1,500)

Payout Perspective:

The payouts are more than a usual Bellator show.  With Sonnen and Jackson, the payouts were expected to high.  MacDonald and Lima reflect the Bellator pay scale increasing to the level of fighter.  The obvious disparity here is Aaron Pico earning more (reportedly anyway) than Michael Chandler.  On the other end of the spectrum, there are low payouts for some of the prelim fighter with the lowest pay being $1,500-$2,000.
