UFC 219 Salaries: Cris ‘Cyborg’ ($500K), Holly Holm ($300K) Top Event Payroll

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 2, 2018

The headlining competitors from UFC 219 were also the event’s top earners.

Reigning women’s featherweight champion Cristiane Justino garnered $500,000 for her unanimous decision triumph over Holly Holm in this past Saturday’s main event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. “Cyborg’s” disclosed purse was a flat fee, with no win bonus. Holm, who pocketed $300,000 in defeat, was also not scheduled to receive a win bonus.

The Nevada Athletic Commission released a full list of salaries from the card on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, lightweight contender Khabib Nurmagomedov earned $160,000 for a lopsided decision triumph over Edson Barboza ($75,000) in the evening’s co-main event. Meanwhile, Neil Magny took home $140,000 for a three-round verdict over former interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit ($115,000), who was returning from a 16-month hiatus.

Note: The disclosed purses reported by state athletic commissions do not include any performance-based or discretionary bonuses that may be awarded to a fighter by the promotion. Additionally, the reported figures do not reflect any deductions made by the commission for taxes, insurance, etc., and do not include any sponsorship money that a fighter may acquire for their performance.
