Stipe Miocic Leads The Way In UFC 241 Fighter Salaries

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 241 took place last night (Sat. August 17, 2019) on pay-per-view (PPV) from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

In the main event of the night, Stipe Miocic recaptured the heavyweight championship by knocking out Daniel Cormier in the fourth round of their matchup. Also, Nate Diaz returned to the Octagon and took home a unanimous decision victory over Anthony “Showtime” Pettis in the night’s co-main event.

And, of course, an epic middleweight contest between heavy-hitters Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa went down, where the Brazilian emerged victorious via decision. Now, the fighter salaries have been released from the UFC 241 PPV.
