Jon Jones: $500,000

Jones and Gustafsson competed back in Sept. 2013. Many view the bout as the greatest mixed martial arts fight of all time. “Bones” emerged victorious via unanimous decision. Fast forward to over five years later and both men are still stalwarts in the light heavyweight division.
Nunes has a chance to make history at UFC 232. If she can defeat Cyborg, then she’ll become the first female fighter in UFC history to win gold in two weight classes. Nunes is the reigning women’s 135-pound champion.
