Israel Adesanya managed to secure a sizeable payday for his lacklustre middleweight championship clash with Yoel Romero at UFC 248.

The 'Last Stylebender,' 30, successfully defended his title for the first time by picking up a unanimous decision win on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Adesanya, who won the middleweight championship in 2019, took home $500,000 for a fight that was heavily criticised for falling below fans' expectations.

According to MMA Mania, Romero walked away from the fight with the second biggest payday from UFC 248 at $350,000.

Zhang Weili defended the UFC women's strawweight championship in a show-stealing match against Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

And the 30-year-old Chinese UFC star took home $100,000 for showing up for the title defence and another $100,000 for winning the fight.

Jedrzejczyk, who suffered a horrific hematoma to the head, secured a $106,000 payday for her performance against Weili.
