Dustin Poirier put in a full night’s work to defeat Dan Hooker, and he was well compensated for his efforts.
Poirier earned an event-high $300,000 for his unanimous decision triumph over Dan Hooker ($110,000) in the UFC on ESPN 12 headliner at the UFC Apex on Saturday night in Las Vegas. Poirier and Hooker also took home “Fight of the Night” honors, as their lightweight clash easily stood out as one of the best of 2020 thus far.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission released a full list of salaries from the event on Monday.
Mike Perry was the card’s second-highest earner, garnering $180,000 for a three-round verdict over Mickey Gall ($50,000) in the evening’s welterweight co-main event. Other notable payouts included Gian Villante, who received $75,000 for a submission loss to Maurice Greene ($60,000) in a featured heavyweight contest, and former PFL champ Philipe Lins, who pocketed $80,000 in a first-round TKO loss to Tanner Boser ($24,000).
