UFC Vegas 60 Salaries and Payouts

UFC Vegas 60 (also known as UFC Fight Night 210, UFC Fight: Sandhagen vs Song, and UFC on ESPN+ 68) on September 17, 2022 is highlighted by a clash between two exciting bantamweight contenders in Song Yadong and Cory Sandhagen. Sandhagen last battled Petr Yan for the interim title at UFC 267. He ultimately fell short but earned a Fight of the Night bonus for his efforts. Song is rising quickly in the bantamweight ranks on the strength of his 8-1-1 record in the UFC. He looks to improve on his #10 ranking with a win over Sandhagen. This 13-fight card also features several exciting prospects like Chidi Njokuani and Bill Algeo.

Update: Despite a strong showing by Song Yadong, Sandhagen was able to open up a nasty cut on Song that proved to be the fight-ender. The doctor stopped the fight in the 4th round to keep Sandhagen in title contention. In the co-main event, “Robocop” Gregory Rodrigues put on a great show against Chidi Njoukuani taking him out with ground and pound. Rodrigues/Njoukuani won the Fight of the Night with Damon Jackson and Dana White Contender Series alum Joe Pyfer taking home the Performance of the Night bonuses. The recent death of his brother was likely weighing heavily on Jackson but he used the emotion to fuel his impressive knockout of rising propsect Pat Sabatini.
