UFC 200 and the TUF 23 Finale combined for over eight million dollars in reported salaries.

Usually when these posts are written, there is a lot of criticism over the UFC's base salaries. While there were some surprises on the low scale (see Dillashaw), the promotion set a lot of records with the UFC 200 disclosed pay - Brock Lesnar's massive cheque, 14 fighters making over $100,000, and over seven million dollars in salary overall.

Sage Northcutt was one of the six-figure guys too, which should ruffle some feathers.

The TUF 23 Finale was obviously much thinner on talent, but Joanna Jedrzejczyk made over 200k, and challenger Claudia Gadelha made 100k as well. Here's a look at all the salaries from both cards, as per the Nevada Athletic Commission:
