UFC 209 Salaries: Alistair Overeem, Mark Hunt Earn $750,000

UFC 209 is in the books and the Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the disclosed salaries from last weekend’s event.

Main card participants Alistair Overeem and Mark Hunt led the way with a disclosed pay day of $750,000.

Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley earned $500,000 for his efforts, while challenger Stephen Thompson brought in a cool $380,000 on the night. The only other fighter to top six figures was veteran Rashad Evans, who earned $150,000 for his loss to Daniel Kelly.

UFC 209’s complete payroll was $3,057,000.

The day prior to UFC 209, Khabib Nurmagomedov was pulled from his scheduled co-main event interim lightweight championship bout with Tony Ferguson due to weight-cutting issues.

Had Nurmagomedov competed, he would have earned a flat rate of $500,000.

Ferguson, meanwhile, received his $250,000 show money but lost out on a possible $250,000 win bonus.

The figures released do not include any money from outside sponsors or Reebok outfitting numbers for the athletes. UFC 209 payouts also exclude any locker room or fight night bonuses.
