New UFC interim middleweight champion honors Israel's Adesanya and featherweight champion Max Holloway has paid the payroll for UFC 236, which loads a flat $ 350,000 purse for their title fights. The Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission launched the final statement on Monday's event in MMA Fighting.
Gastelum ($ 150,000) injured in an exciting thing to get the UFC intermediate middleweight title in the co-headlining bout of the night, while Holloway suffered the unanimous decision loss to Dustin Poirier ($ 250,000) in a failed bid for the UFC interim lightweight title in the main event.
UFC 236 took place April 1
In addition to four championship fighters, only one other UFC 236 player cleared the six-figure mark on revenue: Nikita Krylov, who paid $ 160,000 in salary for the second – submitted success to victory at Ovince Saint Preux.
Aside from their salary-reported paycheck, Poirier, Holloway, Adesanya, and Gastelum also took the $ 50,000 bonus at night for their performances.
