UFC 257 Salaries Revealed: How Much Dustin Poirier And Conor McGregor Made For 'Fight Island' Bout

Conor McGregor walked away from 'Fight Island' with a reported $3 million while Dustin Poirier made $830,000 for his spectacular performance at UFC 257.

But the Irishman led the reported payroll for the promotion's first pay-per-view event of the year, pocketing over $3 million while Poirier banked $830,000 which includes a $50,000 'Performance of the Night' bonus.

Aside from 'The Diamond', seven other UFC 257 stars earned a six-figure purse: Michael Chandler, Dan Hooker, Brad Tavares, Joanne Calderwood, Marina Rodriguez, Jessica Eye and Antonio Carlos Junior.

In addition to their reported purses, Poirier, Chandler, Rodriguez and Makhmud Muradov also earned $50,000 for post-fight related bonuses for their Octagon showings.

The payroll, though, does NOT include PPV points with McGregor expected to earn a lot more than his $3 million purse.
