April 30, 2019

The Florida State Boxing Commission has disclosed the salary information from this past Saturday’s UFC Fort Lauderdale event.  Notably, Greg Hardy’s second UFC fight garnered him $150,000 while Andre Arlovski’s  29th fight with the promotion made him $300,000.

The payouts per MMA Fighting:

Jack Hermansson ($41,000 + $41,000 = $82,000) def. Ronaldo Souza ($210,000)
Greg Hardy ($75,000 + $75,000 = $150,000) def. Dmitrii Smoliakov ($10,000)

Glover Teixeira ($105,000 + $105,000 = $210,000) def. Ion Cutelaba ($22,000)
Cory Sandhagen ($33,000 + $33,000 = $66,000) def. John Lineker ($49,000)
Roosevelt Roberts ($12,000 + $12,000 = $24,000) def. Thomas Gifford ($10,000)
Takashi Sato ($12,000 + $12,000 = $24,000) def. Ben Saunders ($35,000)

Jim Miller ($90,000 + $90,000 = $180,000) def. Jason Gonzalez ($12,000)
Angela Hill ($24,000 + $24,000 = $48,000) def. Jodie Esquibel ($10,000)
Dhiego Lima ($17,000 + $17,000 = $34,000) def. Court McGee ($48,000)

Payout Perspective:

A couple interesting notes including Hardy’s pay is at $75K/$75K which is much higher than most “up and coming” fighters.  One would think that the name and his place on the card dictates the high pay.  Also, Andrei Arlovski is made $300,000 for his loss to Augosto Sakai who made just $24,000.  You may chalk this one up to longevity within the promotion.  Also, Glover Teixeira is now over $100,00o for his base with a change of doubling it.
