Here are the purse numbers for UFC 189's two title fights.

Purses from the athletic commission are out, and Conor McGregor and Chad Mendes are both set to earn the same amount of guaranteed money for their UFC 189 interim title fight. Neither guy is getting a win bonus, which has been a norm for most UFC bouts too. Cole spoke about it on twitter:

While there's a good chance they're not getting the same amount, both headliners in McGregor and Mendes are each getting a cut from the PPV buys on this event. With this card being one of the biggest in the year, both headliners will be getting a significantly higher amount from that 500k when all is said and done.

Mendes seems to have gotten a huge bump on his salary for saving the card after Jose Aldo dropped out to injury. He earned just 48k to show and 48k to win on his last bout against Ricardo Lamas.
