UFC 267 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 267 salaries and payouts including base pay, win bonuses, performance bonuses and promotional compliance pay are shown in the table below.

This card (on October 30, 2021) was highlighted by a title fight between defending champion Jan Blachowicz and challenger Glover Teixiera. Blachowicz last defended his belt against middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. On the other side, 42-year old Teixiera had rattled off 5 straight during his most recent career resurgence including wins over Thiago Santos and Anthony Smith. This pay per view event also featured an interim title fight between former champion Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen. Islam Makhachev vs Dan Hooker and Khamzat Chimaev vs Li Jingliang were also highly anticipated main card bouts.

Teixiera finally achieved his goal of becoming UFC Champion by dismantling Blachowicz with his top control. Yan and Sandhagen put on a show in the interim title fight with Yan capturing a unanimous decision. Makhachev easily submitted Dan Hooker while Chimaev manhandled Li Jingliang.

$50k Performance bonuses for Yan/Sandhagen, Teixiera, Chimaev.
