The UFC 170 salaries have been released and among the top earners are headliners Ronda Rousey and Daniel Cormier
Cormier led the night’s earners banking $160,000, including a $80,000 win bonus, for his seventy-nine second TKO over Patrick Cummins in the night’s co-main event. Cummins’ earnings paled in comparison, earning $8,000 for his UFC debut.
Women’s Bantamweight Champion Rousey earned $110,000, including a $55,000 win bonus, for her sixty-six second TKO over Sara McMann in the night’s main event. McMann earned a total of $16,000 in her first UFC main event.
The night’s other top earners include main carders Rory MacDonald and Mike Pyle. MacDonald earned $100,000 in his decision win over Demian Maia. Pyle picked up a total of $96,000 in his third round TKO victory over TJ Waldburger.
The Fight Night bonuses went to Rory MacDonald, Demian Maia, Ronda Rousey and Stephen Thompson. MacDonald and Maia went to war for three rounds with MacDonald picking up the victory on the scorecards. The effort earned both men the Fight of the Night bonus.
Rousey and Thompson picked up the night’s two “Performance of the Night” bonuses. Rousey needed just over a minute to TKO Sara McMann with a knee to the liver while Thompson knocked out TUF Smashes winner Robert Whittaker in the first round of the night’s main card opener. Each bonus winner earned $50,000 each.
