UFC 276 Bonuses: Fighter Salaries, Payouts and Incentive Pay Revealed

UFC 276 was a very hyped and stacked event with two championships on the line and a main card full of veterans and upcoming superstars. There were explosive knockouts and gritty decision wins while the real winners were the fans who witnessed the proceedings.

Israel Adesanya returned to defend His middle rate belt against the dangerous Jared Cannonier and fought a very tactical battle which nullified the power of the Killa Gorilla. Max Holloway and Alexander Volkanovski also buried the hatchet in the co-main event.

With that out of the way, let us take a look at how much the fighters will earn from their fights at UFC 276.

  1. Taveres vs Du Plessis was the fight of the night!! much better than Robbie Lawler. I disagree with that decision….but maybe it was because Du Plessis asked for $100k instead of $50k.
