UFC Norfolk Fighter Salaries: Joseph Benavidez Leads Payroll

UFC on ESPN+ 27 is in the books and Virginia’s Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation has released the official fighter payouts from the event at Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Virginia.

Leading the way on the payroll was main event participant Joseph Benavidez with $150,000.

Deiveson Figueiredo, who came away with the win, also earned $150,000 but was forced to forfeit 30 percent of his purse after missing weight for the bout. Because he missed weight, Figueiredo was also ineligible to stake his claim to the vacant flyweight championship.

The figures released do not include any money from outside sponsors. UFC Norfolk purses also exclude any locker room bonuses and required Reebok outfitting pay, but do figure in the $50,000 for Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night bonuses.
