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.
With the huge success of the UFC 257 PPV, 'The Notorious' could be looking at an eight-figure pay-out for his outing.
