The UFC 170 basic salaries have been listed for last night’s event in Las Vegas and show that co-main event winner Daniel Cormier was the highest earner, trousering $160,000 for just 79 seconds of fighting.

Main event star Ronda Rousey was next with $110,000, though it’s worth noting that as the female bantamweight champion and one of the sport’s biggest stars she’ll also have a piece of the pay-per-view action too.

Also earning six figures on the night was Rory MacDonald who banks $100,000 for his night’s work.

As always, keep in mind that these are just the basic salaries paid out by the UFC and don’t include things like additional bonuses and sponsorship deals.
