Brock Lesnar yelling

It’s only fitting that UFC 200, the most stacked show in UFC history, also delivered the biggest payouts we’ve ever seen in the promotion.

Leading to charge was co-main event star Brock Lesnar who commanded a record $2,500,000 basic salary for his night’s work, and it’s interesting to note that the second best paid fighter on the night was actually his opponent, Mark Hunt, who banked $700,000 in defeat.

Anderson Silva’s decision to step up on just two days notice was rewarded with a $600,000 payday, while his opponent Daniel Cormier was close behind with $500,000.

Also taking home $500,000 on the night was Miesha Tate, who lost her bantamweight title in the main event, while Jose Aldo earned the same amount as he seized the interim featherweight belt.

Six figure salaries are strewn throughout the card, with Frankie Edgar scoring $190,000, Jim Miller pocketing $118,000, and Gegard Mousasi landing $110,000.

The UFC weren’t finished there, as Joe Lauzon trousered $108,000, and both new bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and Sage Northcutt bolstered their bank accounts to the tune of $100,000.

Moving on the medical suspensions, Miesha Tate suffered a broken nose during her title loss that could keep her out for up to six months, while Travis Browne has a suspected broken wrist, Sage Northcutt has a left elbow injury, and Diego Sanchez fractured his right orbital bone.
