Cris Cyborg to make $500K, Holly Holm making $300K for UFC 219 fight

The headlining ladies will be the top earners for tonight’s UFC 219 year-end card.


Tonight’s UFC 219 card will see some big payouts for leading ladies Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm. MMA Fighting is reporting that Cyborg stands to make $500,000 and Holm will leave with $300,000 after their headlining fight. This will be the largest payout Cyborg has received to date, but Holm hit the $500K mark early last year.

By comparison, Cyborg’s biggest payday came at UFC 214 where she made $200,000 when she fought Tonya Evinger who netted $100,000 for the night’s work. Holm’s biggest payday was for $500,000 against Miesha Tate at UFC 196 where she was unsuccessful in her first title defense.

These seemingly massive payouts pale in comparison to the $3,000,000 Ronda Rousey received for her fight with Amanda Nunes, a contest that would see her knocked out a second, straight time.

Other payouts for tonight’s card, according to a document MMA Fighting obtained from the Nevada Athletic Commission, are as follows:

Khabib Nurmagomedov: $80,000 show + $80,000 win

Edson Barboza: $75,000 show + $75,000 win

Carlos Condit: $115,000 show + $115,000 win

Neil Magny: $70,000 show + $70,000 win

UFC 219 is currently underway at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
