UFC 244 Salaries: Jorge Masvidal And Nate Diaz Lead Purse Report
Jorge Masvidal walked away with the BMF title at New York's Madison Square Garden and a reported half-million disclosed purse.
Masvidal stopped Nate Diaz by doctor's stoppage during their welterweight bout at UFC 244 to claim the 'Baddest Motherf**ker of the Octagon' title.
And both main-eventers led the reported disclosed payroll for UFC 244, pocketing $500,000 a piece.
Aside from Masvidal vs. Diaz, seven other UFC 244 fighters earned six-figure purses: Darren Till ($240,000), Kelvin Gastelum ($165,000), Stephen Thompson ($290,000), Derrick Lewis ($280,000), Kevin Lee ($218,000), Corey Anderson ($184,000) and Andrei Arlovski ($300,000).
In addition to their reported purses, Thompson, Vicente Luque, Lee and Anderson also banked $50,000 for fight of the night related bonuses for their Octagon performances.
Gregor Gillespie was undefeated in 13 fights coming into #UFC244.
Then he met Kevin Lee's left foot. :scream:
