The full list of basic salaries for UFC 246 in Las Vegas has been released ahead of tonight’s event and there’s no surprises about who is leading the payouts.
Conor McGregor will command a $3 million basic salary, but it should be stressed that it’s his cut of the pay-per-view earnings that is expected to send his overall payout into the tens of millions, not to mention additional sponsorship money and bonuses.
As for Donald Cerrone, he is assured a $200,000 payout, but will be able to extend that to a total of $400,000 if he defeats McGregor, while it’s unclear what kind of a deal he may have negotiated in terms of PPV revenue for facing ‘The Notorious’.
Beyond that the card’s relative lack of star power shows in the payscale, with only a few more fighters likely to achieve a six-figure salary.
Anthony Pettis will earn $155,000 to show and can double that with a victory, while Holly Holm will be guaranteed $150,000 and can claim an additional $50,000 with a win.
Beyond that there’s a number of fighters who would need to win in order to reach the six-figure mark, including Aleksei Oleinik, Raquel Pennington, Andre Fili and Diego Ferreira.
