Lyoto Machida may have suffered a disappointing KO loss to Yoel Romero on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 70, but the former light-heavyweight champion still emerged from the Florida show with the night’s biggest pay cheque, taking home $200,000.
Next up on the earnings list was the aforementioned Yoel Romero who banked $66,000, as did co-main event winner Lorenz Larkin.
With the original line-up for the show being decimated due to travel Visa issues there weren’t many notable stars featuring on the rest of the card and that’s reflected in the relatively low salaries, with the next best being Antonio Carlos Junior who trousered $34,000 for his main card victory.
