Dominick Cruz’s championship victory over T.J. Dillashaw in the UFC Fight Night Boston headliner made him the second-highest earner at the Jan. 17 event.
“The Dominator” pocketed $110,000 for his five-round, split decision triumph over Dillashaw ($70,000) at the TD Garden in Boston last month. The Massachusetts State Athletic Commission released salary figures from the UFC Fight Night event to Sherdog.com on Friday.
Only Travis Browne, who made $120,000 for a controversial third-round technical knockout triumph over Matt Mitrione ($36,000) in a featured heavyweight clash, made more than Cruz. Another notable notable earner on the card was former Bellator champ Eddie Alvarez, who garnered $100,000 — with no win bonus — for a split verdict over Anthony Pettis ($80,000) in the co-main event.

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.
