UFC 227 is in the books and the fighter salaries from the event have been released. Following the conclusion of this weekend’s pay-per-view at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the California State Athletic Commission released the purses for each fighter on the card. When it was all said and down, the four fighters participating in title fights — bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw, Cody Garbrandt, new flyweight titleholder Henry Cejudo, and Demetrious Johnson — all cleared six-figures.
Leading the way was former flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, who earned $380,000 in a stunning loss to Henry Cejudo. The Olympic gold medalist, meanwhile, hauled in $100,000 for shocking the mixed martial arts world.
In the main event, TJ Dillashaw pocketed $350,000 for his first-round knockout of Cody Garbrandt, who earned $200,000.
The figures released do not include any money from outside sponsors, Reebok outfitting numbers or outside sponsorships for the athletes. UFC 227 purses also exclude any locker room bonuses which include the $50,000 for Fight of the Night and Performance of the night bonuses.
