The basic fighter salaries from Saturday night’s UFC On FOX 29 event in Arizona have now been released and show that victorious main event star Dustin Poirier was the evening’s biggest earner with a $170,000 payday.
Defeated co-main event fighter Carlos Condit was next up with $115,000, while Justin Gaethje pocketed $110,000 despite his loss in the evening’s headliner.
Talented striker Israel Adesanya banked $106,000, while the final fighter to take home a six-figure sum was Alex Oliveira with a $100,000 paycheque.
