UFC Vegas 47 Salaries and Payouts

UFC Vegas 47 (also known as UFC Fight Night: Hermansson vs Strickland, UFC on ESPN+ 58, UFC Fight Night 200) salaries and payouts including base pay, win bonuses, performance bonuses, and promotional compliance pay are shown in the table below.

This card (on February 5th, 2022) features a battle between two top 10 middleweights in Sean Strickland and Jack “The Joker” Hermansson. Strickland hasn’t tasted defeat since 2018 and looks to make it 6 in a row against the gritty Hermansson. “The Joker” rebounded in his last fight against Armen Shahbazyan after a tough loss to former title challenger Marvin Vettori.

While Strickland hasn’t lost in 2018, another main card fighter hasn’t won since 2018 – veteran “Smilin” Sam Alvey. Alvey will be a big underdog against rising contender Brendan Allen.

Fight odds: As of Friday night, Strickland enters as a near 2-1 favorite against the +170 Hermansson at BetUS.

Post Fight Update: Jack Hermansson was no match for the forward pressure and pinpoint striking of Sean Strickland. Strickland picked “The Joker” apart over 5 rounds to improve his winning streak to 6 and put himself firmly in title contention. In the co-main event, Diaz Brother protégé Nick Maximov took out Punahele Soriano with some tenacious grappling. Julian Erosa took home $100k Fight of The Night bonus because his opponent Steven Peterson was ineligible due to the fact that he missed weight. The other bonuses went to Shavkat Rakhmanov for his nasty knockout of Carlston Harris and Chidi Njokuani for his lightning fast knockout of the durable Marc-Andre Barriault.

*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.

Total Payout to Fighters (including fight purse, PPV points, bonuses, and compliance pay): $1,705,500
