Ronda Rousey Earns $3 Million+ For UFC 207

According to figures released to MMAFighting.com via the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey earned a guaranteed fight purse of $3,000,000 with pay-per-view points on top of the large base pay. With the three million dollar guaranteed payday, Rousey ties the all-time UFC record for largest guaranteed purse paid to a fighter, equaling the mark set by Conor McGregor earlier this year.

Her opponent, UFC 135-pound women’s champion Amanda Nunes earned a reported $200,000 fight purse ($100,000 to show, $100,000 for winning). Because she was the champion going into the event, Nunes will also enjoy some financial back-end participation from the pay-per-view sales generated by Friday’s show at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The MMA Fighting article with figures released by the NSAC also reports that former UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz, who also had a share of participation in the back-end on the pay-per-view, earned a guaranteed fight purse of $350,000. Team Alpha Male undefeated knockout artist and new UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody “No Love” Garbrandt earned a reported guaranteed fight purse of $200,000 for the biggest victory of his pro MMA career on Friday night.
