Jones, Gus and Cyborg earn $500K for UFC 232 per CSAC disclosure

December 29, 2018

MMA Fighting has obtained the purses for the main-eventers for Saturday’s UFC 232.  Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson will earn $500,000 for their main event at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

There is no indication that either will receive a win bonus although it’s likely that each will receive a PPV upside.  In addition, Cris “Cyborg” will earn $500,000 while her opponent Amanda Nunes will earn $350,000.  The two will fight for Cyborg’s Featherweight title.

Payout Perspective:

Cyborg earned $500,000 in her last fight at UFC 222 in March. Nunes’ last reported salary was at UFC 207 when she retired Ronda Rousey and earned $200,000 and another $100,000 for her win.  Jones had earned $500,000 for his fight against Daniel Cormier in July 2017.  Gustafsson has not had a reported purse since 2012 so it’s hard to gage how much he’s earned for non-title fights.  We should have the rest of the list after the event.
