Amanda Nunes Leads UFC 250 Salaries With $500,000 Payday


Amanda Nunes unsurprisingly went home with the biggest paycheck at UFC 250.

Nunes enjoyed a lopsided decision victory over Felicia Spencer this past weekend to defend her women’s featherweight title.

She was already guaranteed $350,000 to show and the win earned her a $150,000 bonus to come away with $500,000 in total. Spencer, meanwhile, earned $125,000 for her effort.

Former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt was the second-highest earner on the night for his emphatic knockout of Raphael Assuncao.

“No Love” earned $130,000 to show and an additional $130,000 as a win bonus. He also received a $50,000 performance of the night bonus to take his total earnings to $310,000. Assuncao only took home $79,000 on the other hand.
