UFC 276 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 276 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 276 (on July 2, 2022) was a pay per view card that featured two title fights. Israel Adesanya defended his middleweight belt in a grinding affair against Jared Cannonier. Cannonier was aggressive but the counterstriking of the champion proved to be too much as Adesanya took a 5-round decision. Alexander Volkanovski left no doubt about who the greatest featherweight in the world is right now after dominating former champion Max Holloway over five rounds. Holloway was left battered and bloodied after falling once again to the Aussie. A dangerous middleweight title contender emerged during the main card as well as kickboxing world champ Alex Periera knocked out a tough Sean Strickland.

Bonuses went to Periera, Julija Stoliarenko, and Jalin Turner for Performance of the Night while Bryan Barbarena and Robbie Lawler took home Fight of the Night honors.
