UFC 250 Fighter Salaries: Amanda Nunes Tops Payroll With $500k

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to pay-per-view on Saturday, June 6 with UFC 250 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, two-division women’s champion Amanda Nunes battered Felicia Spencer for five rounds en route to a dominant unanimous decision victory.

Following the event, the Nevada State Athletic Commission released its full list of disclosed fighter salaries.

For her efforts, the women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion took home a cool $500,000. Spencer, meanwhile, picked up $125,000 in the loss. In the co-main event, former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt earned $260,000 — the second-highest purse of the night — for his buzzer-beating knockout over Raphael Assuncao, who received $79,000.

Other fighters earning six-figures include Aljamain Sterling ($152,000), Neil Magny ($158,000), and Alex Caceres ($116,000).

The disclosed figures released do not include any money from outside sponsors. UFC 249 purses also exclude any locker room bonuses and required Reebok outfitting pay and do not include the $50,000 for Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night bonuses.

The $50,000 fight night bonuses for UFC 250 went to Cody Garbrant, Aljamain Sterling, Sean O’Malley, and Alex Perez.
