Check out the purse information for UFC 245.

The guaranteed UFC 245 purses have been released by the Nevada Athletic Commission, including the figures for the three title fights that are topping the card. The headliners in Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington will earn the most and both get a flat fee of $500,000 for their welterweight title clash.

The next highest earner on the card is from a non-title bout, with long time champion Jose Aldo having a $400,000 base salary and an additional $50,000 win bonus.

The two other champions on the card in Max Holloway and Amanda Nunes are earning less than the ones listed above, with the featherweight champion earning a flat $350,000, and the female double-champ getting $350,000 plus a $100,000 win bonus.

Others on the card making six digits include title challengers Alexander Volkanovski ($250,000) and Germaine de Randamie ($100,000), UFC hall-of-famer Urijah Faber ($250,000), and Marlon Moraes ($110,000/$110,000).

The lowest earner on the card is Puna Soriano ($10,000/$10,000), who was signed off Dana White’s contender series.
