Payouts and salaries from UFC 194 announced

As you expect when viewing the payouts and salaries from this weekend’s UFC 194 card that were released by the Nevada State Athletic Comission (NSAC) on Dec. 14, Conor McGregor was not only the big winner inside the Octagon, but outside of it. He boasts the highest payout from UFC 194, taking in a total announced payout of $500,000 – though that figure is probably much higher than what is being reported. However, McGregor actually did not receive any bonus for winning the featherweight title in 13 seconds.

Jose Aldo took home $400,000 from the event, though a successful defense of his title would have netted him an additional $100,000. Interestingly enough, Urijah Faber was the third-highest paid fighter from Saturday’s event, despite not even competing on the main card. Faber received a total of $300,000 for his victory over Frankie Saenz in the main event of the UFC 194 preliminary card. By comparison, his opponent only received $20,000.
