After a massive UFC 200 PPV where the total disclosed salary was close to seven million dollars, UFC 201 wasn't exactly going to blow anyone away with huge paychecks. But it is surprising that just four fighters broke the $100,000 mark.

Two of them, headliners Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley, made the lion's share of the salary given out on the card. The only other two to break 100k were Jake Ellenberger and Jorge Masvidal.

Here's a look at the full breakdown, via the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission. Remember, these numbers don't include the performance bonuses or any Reebok cash.


Tyron Woodley ($270,000 + $70,000 = $340,000) def. Robbie Lawler ($500,000)
Karolina Kowalkiewicz ($19,000 + $19,000 = $38,000) def. Rose Namajunas ($46,000)
Jake Ellenberger ($75,000 + $75,000 = $150,000) def. Matt Brown ($73,000)
Erik Perez ($24,000 + $24,000 = $48,000) def. Francisco Rivera ($23,000)
Ryan Benoit ($13,000 + $13,000 = $26,000) def. Fredy Serrano ($12,000)
