UFC 202 fighter salaries: Conor McGregor earns $3 million, Diaz $2 million

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz continue to change the game. For their impressive performances in the main event of UFC 202 this weekend, McGregor and Diaz earned a combined $5 million.

According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the main eventers earned 82 percent of the disclosed $6,106,000 payroll for the event. McGregor pulled in a record $3 million for his efforts, while Diaz earned $2 million.

The only other fighters to hit six figures were main card participants Anthony Johnson ($270,000), who scored a knockout over Glover Teixeira in the co-main event, and Donald Cerrone ($170,000).

The figures released do not include any money from outside sponsors, Reebok outfitting numbers or outside sponsorships for the athletes. UFC 202 purses also exclude any locker room bonuses.
