The UFC 209 salaries are in and two fighters stand alone at the top.
This past Saturday night (March 4) UFC 209 took place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight title holder Tyron Woodley defended his gold against Stephen Thompson once again.
This time, “The Chosen One” barely earned the victory. While their first encounter ended in a majority draw, Woodley took a majority decision in the second title bout. Woodley nabbed $500,000 with a $100,000 win bonus included according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). Thompson received $380,000.
Despite being in the main event, Woodley and “Wonderboy” could not match the salaries that the two fighters in the main card opener made. Alistair Overeem banked $750,000 as well as his opponent Mark Hunt. “The Reem” iced “Super Samoan” with a third-round knockout via brutal knees to the head.
