UFC 229 Salaries: McGregor Set To Make $3 Million, Khabib Gets $2 Million

The UFC 229 salaries have been revealed before fight night.

Tomorrow night (Oct. 6), UFC 229 will be held inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Headlining the card will be a lightweight title bout between champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor. Both men may not like each other, but they can agree that their paychecks are looking swell.

UFC 229 Salaries

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the UFC 229 salaries. McGregor will walk away with a base salary of $3 million. Nurmagomedov will take home $2 million. Of course the salaries don’t include pay-per-view points, the Reebok check, or any bonuses that aren’t disclosed.

Numbers for Tony Ferguson are a bit odd. He’ll be getting $150,000 to show and a potential $5,000 win bonus. No, that isn’t a typo. His opponent, Anthony Pettis, will receive $145,000 to show and $145,000 to win.
