UFC 184 took place last Saturday night with Ronda Rousey beating Cat Zingano in the main event to retain her Bantamweight title. Rousey picked up $130,000 – which isnt bad for 14 seconds worth of work! Zingano took home $100,000 for her part in the loss. Although Rousey’s pay seems unusually low, she will receive an undisclosed amount from PPV sales as well as an extra $50,000 for performance of the night.
The others to receive the bonus were Jake Ellenberger, who choked out veteran Josh Koscheck; Tim Means, who scored a first round TKO victory over Dhiego Lima; and Tony Ferguson, who submitted Gleison Tibau.
Each received $50,000.
A complete list of the UFC 184 salaries, according to the CSAC, can be seen below. As always, these figures do not represent a fighter’s total earnings, as sponsorship money, pay-per-view income, and discretionary post-fight bonuses are not publicly disclosed.
