The winners at the top of the UFC 250 card were also the event’s highest earners.

Two-division champion Amanda Nunes took home $500,000 for her lopsided decision triumph over Felicia Spencer ($125,000) in Saturday’s headliner at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. That figure included a $150,000 win bonus for the Brazilian, who successfully defended her featherweight crown for the first time.

In the co-main event, Cody Garbrandt garnered $260,000 — including a $130,000 win bonus — for a spectacular second-round knockout of Raphael Assuncao ($79,000) at bantamweight. The victory ended a three-bout losing streak for the former 135-pound champion.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission recently released a full list of salaries from the event.

Three other competitors from UFC 250 earned six-figure paydays. Aljamain Sterling received $152,000 for a first-round submission of Cory Sandhagen ($80,000) at bantamweight, while Neil Magny earned $158,000 for a decision over Anthony Rocco Martin ($48,000). Finally, Alex Caceres picked up $116,000 for a three-round verdict against Chase Hooper ($27,000).
