UFC 266 Bonuses: Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega fight purse, payouts, salaries: How Much Will the Fighters Make?

UFC 266 Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega fight purse payouts salaries

UFC Featherweight Champion Alexander Volkanovski is set to defend his belt against #2 ranked Brian Ortega on September 25, 2021, at T-Mobile Arena.

Previously Volkanovski won the belt over Max Holloway by a split decision at UFC 245. However, the winner then defended the title in a rematch at UFC 251. So, UFC 266 will be Alexander’s second title defense.

The Australian native started his UFC career in 2016, and since then, he has kept winning all the battles. Overall, Volkanovski has only one loss in his 23 MMA fights.

On the other hand, Ortega is a former title challenger who joined the UFC in 2014 and lost one UFC bout against Max Holloway at UFC 231. The upcoming fight will be Ortega’s second attempt for the Featherweight title.

However, Volkanovski vs Ortega was entitled to take place at UFC 260, but Volkanovski’s COVID positive made the delay. It is evident that fans have been waiting for more than 6 months. So, it can be assumed that there will be a reasonable amount of money as the purse.

So, what is the purse for UFC 266? Let’s check them out.

The official announcement for the final payout is out after the end of UFC 266. The table contains the bonuses, result, salaries, sponsorship details, which are official from UFC.

Brian Ortega, on the other hand, is facing his second title shot attempt. Hence he is entitled to receive $300,000. However, in his last title shot at UFC 231, he received $330,000. But, his payout is likely to increase at UFC 266. Ortega’s final payout is $332,000 including the sponsorships. Alexander Volkanovski also earned $350,000 in his last title defense against Holloway, but he earned a total of $1,173,333, which includes the PPV share and sponsorship. Volkanovski’s final payout is $792,00o, which includes, PPV buys, performance bonus and sponsorships.

This UFC 266 purse detail is confirmed by various sources. Since UFC 266 will be Volkanovski’s second title shot, and there was not much negotiation with UFC, he will earn a $300,000 guaranteed base salary. The earning from PPV and winning bonus will be added after the fight.

Please Keep in mind that this is not the final payout. The win bonus, PPV share, and performance bonus are yet to be added. As soon as the information is available, we will update the table. Besides, we will also add the payout for other fighters on the UFC 266 card.
