UFC Vegas 48 Salaries and Payouts

UFC Vegas 48 (also known as UFC Fight Night: Walker vs Hill, UFC on ESPN+ 59, UFC Fight Night 201) salaries and payouts including base pay, win bonuses, performance bonuses, and promotional compliance pay are shown in the table below.

This card (on February 19th, 2022) featured the rise of a contender in Jamahal Hill as he lit up Johnny Walker in the first round. A punch to the side of the head put Walker on roller skates and the follow up punches put his lights out. It was an epic coming out party for Hill as he improved to 10-1. In the co-main event, brazilian jiu jitsu black belt Kyle Daukaus got a buzzer beater submission victory over Jamie Pickett. He was able to adjust his squeeze on a d’arce choke to get a tap right before the first round bell. 39-fight veteran Jim Miller proved his staying power as he knocked out Dana White Contender Series alum Nikolas Motta. $50,000 bonuses went to Hill, Daukaus, Stephanie Egger and David Onama.
