Jackson, who handed Lima his fourth straight loss via unanimous 50-45 scorecards, earned a disclosed $191,000 payout opposite Lima, who took home $100,000 for the catchweight fight this past Friday at Emerald Queen Casino and Hotel in Tacoma, Wash.
The second-highest earner was welterweight Lorenz Larkin ($125,000), whose meeting with Mukhamed Berkhamov ($33,000) was declared a no-contest after an accidental illegal elbow rendered Berkhamov unable to continue.
The Bellator 283 salaries were released by the Washington State Department of Licensing after a public records request from MMA Fighting. The event’s main card aired live on Showtime following prelims on MMA Fighting.
As always, these figures do not represent a fighter’s total earnings, as certain sponsorship incomes or discretionary post-fight bonuses are not publicly disclosed.
