Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor are now neck and neck in disclosed purses.
Rousey will make a disclosed $3 million for her fight with Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 on Friday night in Las Vegas, per a document obtained by MMA Fighting from the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC). McGregor set the UFC record at UFC 202 in August with a $3 million disclosed purse for his second bout with Nate Diaz.
The disclosed purse is not the full amount of money Rousey will make. She stands to make much more in pay-per-view revenue and other bonuses. “Rowdy” will not get a win bonus if she is victorious.
Nunes, the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, will make $100,000 to show and another $100,000 if she wins. Nunes will also get a share of the pay-per-view.
UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz will make a disclosed $350,000 at UFC 207, while opponent Cody Garbrandt gets $200,000. Neither will get a win bonus. Cruz is reportedly on the pay-per-view share as well.
The only other six-figure fighters on the card are Johny Hendricks and T.J. Dillashaw, who will make $100,000 to show and another $100,000 if they win. Hendricks faces Neil Magny and Dillashaw meets John Lineker.
