The UFC returns to Las Vegas this weekend as we get prepared for international fight week and UFC 276. But before the festivities begin, UFC Vegas 57 will have some hard-hitting fighters to get us amped for what seems like a busy month ahead.
The card will be headlined by a mouthwatering matchup in the Lightweight Division, as 11th ranked Arman Tsarukyan will take on number 12 Mateusz Gamnrot of Poland. The fight will have palpable consequences in the division, as this fight presents an opportunity for both fighters to break into the upper echelons of the most talent-stacked division.
Arman Tsarykyan will be looking for a sixth straight win, and a third finish in a row as he aims to put the division on notice. The Armenian hasn’t lost in the UFC since his debut match against Islam Makhachev and is widely touted as the dark horse in the division.
Gamrot, too, is on a winning streak. With only four fights under his belt, the Polish man also lost on his debut but is yet to taste defeat in the fights after that. Gamrot knows that a win at Vegas will put him amongst the top dogs in the division, and maybe an eventual title fight sooner than expected. Let’s find out their UFC Vegas 57 purse.
UFC Vegas 57 Purse, Payout, Salaries
Tsarukyan vs Gamrot
In his last fight, Tsarukyan made $150,000. This included $50,000 to show up, another $50,000 because he won, and $50,000 more as a Performance of the Night bonus. The Armenian is expected to make $60,000 minimum for showing up. The rest will depend on the result of the fight.
Gamrot last fought in December of 2021. During that fight, he made a total of $78,000. In this fight, he is expected to make somewhere around $90,000. There could be more depending on the outcome of the fight.
Rakhmanov vs Magny
Shavkat Rakhmanov is a relative newbie in the UFC and has only fought three times. However, he is yet to be defeated in his entire MMA career. In his last fight, he made $24,000. Of that, $20,00 was his base salary, and the rest was from sponsorships. In this fight, he is expected to make a guaranteed $30,000, whilst there might be bonuses based on his performance.
Neil Magny made more than $200,000 in his next fight. This number includes his win bonus and sponsor incentives. At Vegas this weekend, it is estimated that he will make a guaranteed $110,000 just for showing up. Other amounts depend on certain variables.
