UFC 270 Salaries and Payouts

This pay per view (the first of 2022) is highlighted by two exciting title fights. In the main event, powerhouse Francis Ngannou takes on the interim champion Ciryl Gane. Ngannou captured the crown from Stipe Miocic at UFC 260 and looks to defend against the undefeated Gane. Gane ran through former title challenger Derrick Lewis to win the interim belt and looks to continue his dominant ways. In the co-main event, we get the trilogy between champion Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo. We have quite the storyline here as Figueiredo has been training with Moreno’s former sparring partner Henry Cejudo. Moreno looks to defend the belt he took off Figueiredo at UFC 263.

Odds: Ngannou enters the fight as a slight underdog at +100 while Moreno is a -175 favorite to defend his belt.

Update: In the main event, Ngannou surprised everyone with his grappling skills by controlling Ciryl Gane on the mat for the final 3 rounds. Gane was effective at maintaining distance in the first two rounds and peppering Ngannou with jabs and leg strikes. Ultimately, the dominant wrestling from Ngannou won over the judges and he retained his belt in a unanimous decision. In the Fight of the Night co-main event, Figueiredo was able to recapture the title from Moreno in a thrilling back and forth 5 round fight. Figueiredo’s power made a big difference. The other $50k bonuses went to Vanessa Demopoulos for her submission comeback and to Said Nurmagomedov for his quick submission win over Cody Stamman.

*The California State Athletic Commission has released the payouts of Saturday’s card. Numbers have been updated with assumptions remaining for PPV share and Venum pay. All promotional compliance pay figures are based on the formula negotiated with Venum.

Assumptions:
Assuming Ngannou, Gane, Figgy and Moreno are getting pay per view share
Solely for the purposes of salary estimation, assuming 500,000 buys based on the increased cost and the drawing power of the card
Assume Dana White Contender Series appearances count towards number of UFC fights as it relates to Venum pay
