UFC Vegas 49 (also known as UFC Fight Night: Makhachev vs Green, UFC on ESPN+ 60, UFC Fight Night 202) salaries and payouts including base pay, win bonuses, performance bonuses, and promotional compliance pay are shown in the table below.
This card (on February 26th, 2022) features a catchweight bout between last minute replacement Bobby Green and powerhouse grappler Islam Makhachev. Makhachev is a massive -900 favorite and looks to continue his march to the title. Green replaced an injured Beniel Dariush and looks to shock the world against the Dagestani. Green has won his last two fights against solid fighters in Al Iaquinta and Nasrat Haqparast.
Update: Makhachev proved the oddsmakers right with his dominant first round TKO victory over late replacement Bobby Green. The grappler quickly took Green down with a double leg and slowly transitioned to the mount where his ground and pound forced the referee to stop the fight. In the co-main event, Wellington Turman took out veteran Misha Cirkunov with an armbar in the second round. Turman was able to take home a $50k bonus for his submission victory. The other bonuses went to Priscila Cachoeira and Ji Yeon Kim (for their back and forth slug fest) and to Arman Tsarukyan for his dominant finish of Joel Alvarez.
