The full list of disclosed payouts for UFC 200 has been released

Big money

Tom Victor

We knew the huge UFC 200 card would carry with it some huge payouts, but we didn’t know quite how big until now.

Brock Lesnar took home the biggest pay-packet in Las Vegas, earning a record $2.5m (with no win bonus) after seeing off Mark Hunt in his first UFC bout since 2011.

Hunt took home $700,000, more than anyone else on the card, while four other fighters earned half a million or more as the total overall payouts approached $7m.

Jose Aldo and Daniel Cormier each made $500,000 after beating Frankie Edgar and Anderson Silva respectively, with Miesha Tate making the same amount despite her defeat to Amanda Nunes, while Silva earned $600,000 after stepping in for Jon Jones just days before the bout.
