Payout Perspective:

It appears that the title fights payouts will no longer have win bonus based on the last couple of disclosed payouts we’ve seen.  Gastelum receiving a $150,000 flat payout seems underpaid for this event and perhaps interim title fight payouts seems not on the same scale as other title match-ups.
