UFC 263 Fighter Salaries

The basic salaries from the recent UFC 263 event in Arizona have now been revealed and show that Israel Adesanya was the top earner on the night, banking $500,000.

However, it should be noted that as middleweight champion, Adesanya, along with flyweight titleholder Deiveson Figueiredo, who earned a $210,000 salary, will also have been entitled to a cut of the 600,000 PPV buys the event generated, which will boost their income considerably.

Meanwhile, the other half of the main event, Marvin Vettori received the second highest salary of the night at $350,000.

Another key earner on the night was Nate Diaz, who took home $250,000, though due to his star status it’s rumored that he may have received a significant undisclosed sum for his participation in the event.

Also scooping up a six-figure sum on the night were welterweight veteran Demian Maia ($175,000), current No.3 contender in the same division, Leon Edwards ($110,000) and the newly crowned 125lb champ Brandon Moreno ($100,000).
