Former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley may not have gotten the victory, but he did go home with the biggest base payday from UFC Vegas.

Woodley suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Gilbert Burns after getting outclassed over five rounds in the evening’s headliner. It means he is now on the first losing streak of his professional career.

The only consolation for “The Chosen One” was that he earned the biggest payday on the night as he received $200,000 to show. He would have earned another $150,000 had he gotten the victory, however.

Burns, on the other hand, received $84,000 to show and $84,000 as a win bonus. His $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus took his total to $218,000.

Not a bad payday for Burns who is now the only fighter to have competed twice during the pandemic.
