UFC 212 Fighter Payouts

Vitor Belfort walked home with $515,000

UFC 212 took place this past Saturday and saw Max Holloway crowned as the undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion, however despite this he wasn’t the highest earner on the card.

That accolade went to Vitor Belfort who netted $515,000 – This was $300,000 to show, $200,000 win bonus and just $15,000 from Reebok for sponsorship. Holloway walked away with $410,000 – $160,000 to show a further $160,000 for winning, $50,000 for the fight of the night and $40,000 from Reebok.

His opponent Jose Aldo earned $80,000 more, coming in as champion he was paid $400,000 to show, $240,000 more than his opponent, who too was coming in as a champion, he may have only been the interim champion, but still a champion.
