Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley each received seven figures for their eight rounds of boxing this past Sunday night.

Paul, who earned a split decision win, and Woodley earned $2 million each for their main event matchup in Cleveland, the Ohio State Athletic Commission revealed to MMA Fighting on Tuesday.

The YouTube star improved to 4-0 in his young boxing career, while the former UFC welterweight champion has lost his last five fights—four of which took place inside the UFC’s octagon.

In addition, commission officials confirmed to MMA Fighting that both Paul and Woodley were drug tested on Sunday, although the results of the tests haven’t been made public as of yet.

Heavyweights Daniel Dubois, who earned a first-round stoppage win, and Juiseppe Cusumano were the other two fighters to earn at least $100,000 on the card, while Amanda Serrano earned a $75,000 purse for her unanimous decision win over Yamileth Mercado in the co-main event.
