UFC 250 Salaries: Amanda Nunes Is The Top Earner

UFC 250 is in the books, which means the salaries have rolled out.

Last night (June 6), UFC 250 took place inside the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, UFC “champ-champ” Amanda Nunes put her women’s featherweight gold on the line against Felicia Spencer. While Spencer hung in tough, she was outclassed for five rounds. Nunes successfully retained her 145-pound championship and earned $500,000 in base pay. Spencer took home $125,000.

In the co-main event, Aljamain Sterling made quite the statement. The “Funk Master” earned a quick first-round submission victory over Cory Sandhagen. Sterling nabbed $152,000 while Sandhagen raked in $80,000.

Coming in second behind Nunes in terms of salary was Cody Garbrandt. “No Love” took home $260,000 after flattening Raphael Assuncao. Assuncao ended up nabbing a base pay of $79,000.
