UFC 199 Salaries

The UFC 199 basic salary’s have been revealed, and show that by a wide margin, veteran star Dan Henderson was the biggest earner on the night, banking a whopping $800,000.

That’s one of the highest basic salaries ever paid out to a fighter by the UFC, equalling the likes of Anderson Silva, and he certainly earned it on the night with a memorable KO victory.

Next up was bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, who started to make up for lost time with a healthy $350,000 payday for his successful title defense in the co-main event.

Next up were the event’s two headliners, Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold, who both trousered $250,000 for their efforts in the Octagon on Saturday night.

The six-figure salaries continued with Urijah Faber taking home $160,000, Max Holloway on $150,000 and Dustin Poirier cashing in $110,000.
