Francis Ngannou walked away from Las Vegas with the UFC heavyweight title and a reported $730,000 following his sensational victory.
But Miocic led the reported payroll despite losing his title, pocketing $790,000 while Ngannou earned $730,000 including a massive $150,000 win bonus.
Aside from both main-eventers, three other UFC 260 fighters earned a six-figure purse: Tyron Woodley, Vicente Luque and Sean O'Malley.
In addition to their reported purses, Ngannou, O'Malley, Woodley and Luque also earned $50,000 for post-fight related bonuses for their Octagon showings.
Didn't last long but man did it deliver.
