Cha-Ching! Four UFC 227 fighters made six figures

Cha-Ching! Four UFC 227 fighters made six figures

The main and co-main event combatants from UFC 227 all made out pretty well this past weekend. Each of the top four fighters on the card all pulled in six figures. Of course, this is all before sponsor dollars and Reebok, etc. However, the disclosed UFC payroll is nothing to scoff at.

Demetrious Johnson led the way with $380,000 and TJ Dillashaw was close behind him, making $350,000. Next up was Cody Garbrandt at $200,000 and the last fighter on the list was the newly crowned flyweight champ, Henry Cejudo, at $100,000. Cub Swanson was on the cusp, earning $90,000 in his loss to Fabricio Moicano.

The full payouts were first reported by Shaun Al-Shatti at MMAFighting.com.
