Andrei Arlovski halted a five-bout skid at UFC Fight Night 120, and he earned a pretty nice paycheck in the process.
The former heavyweight champion received an event-high $250,000 for his unanimous decision victory over Junior Albini ($12,000) at UFC Fight Night 120 this past Saturday at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va. The Virginia Department of Professional & Occupational Regulation released a list of salaries from the card to MMAFighting.com on Wednesday.
UFC Fight Night 120 was headlined by a lightweight showdown between Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis. Poirier pocketed $130,000 for his third-round submission victory over Pettis ($135,000) in what was a bloody and entertaining main event.
Five other competitors from UFC Fight Night 120 garnered six-figure purses: Matt Brown ($150,000), Raphael Assuncao ($113,200), Clay Guida ($114,000), Marlon Moraes ($140,000) and Sage Northcutt ($120,000).
