The CSAC has released the fighter payouts for UFC on Versus 2. Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional undisclosed bonuses or sponsorship money, which in many cases exceeds a fighter’s base pay. These numbers also do not account for taxes, insurance, and license fees.
Takanori Gomi was the night’s big money winner with a cool $120,000. He was the only fighter on the card to pass the six-figure mark after his win and KO bonuses. Brian Stann came in second with a $74,000 payday. Charles Oliveira, Mike Massenzio, Jon Jones, and Yushin Okami all made $45,000+.
