UFC 264 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 264 Salaries and Payouts

UFC Vegas 264 salaries and payouts including base pay, win bonuses, performance bonuses and promotional compliance pay are shown in the table below.

This card (on July 10, 2021) was highlighted by the trilogy fight between the “Notorious” Conor McGregor and Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier. The first two fights between McGregor and Poirier ended in knockouts with McGregor winning the first in 2014 and Poirier getting his revenge in January 2021. The trilogy fight ended in a gruesome McGregor leg injury after a back and forth first round. Sean O’Malley beat down newcomer Kris Moutinho but the bosses decided to hand them both $75k fight of the night bonuses along with performance of the night bonuses to Dricus Du Plessis and Tai Tuivasa. Notably left out of the bonuses was an exciting scrap between Michel Pereira and Niko Price. Hoping they took home some of those notorious “locker room bonuses”!

*Note that the official payouts have not been disclosed for this fight card in Las Vegas so the salaries listed are based on estimates of previous contracts, trends and drawing power. Other assumptions are made like expected contract changes. All promotional compliance pay figures are based on the formula negotiated with Venum.

PPV Points Assumptions:
For the purposes of PPV share estimation, we are using 1.8 million views since their second fight drew a reported 1.6 million views (this will be updated if official numbers are released)
Assuming McGregor gets 5x the standard points
Assuming Poirier is getting paid using the standard PPV formula

Total Payout to Fighters (including fight purse, PPV points, bonuses and compliance pay): $30,400,000
Total Compliance Pay (Venum): $226,000
