A trio of heavyweight fighters led the disclosed payroll for Bellator 199, each earning $150,000 for their respective performances this past weekend. The California State Athletic Commission released the event’s finalized salary information Wednesday to MMA Fighting.

Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix participants Ryan Bader and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal joined UFC veteran Cheick Kongo in cashing $150,000 paydays at Bellator 199. Bader defeated Lawal via 15-second knockout to advance to the semifinals of the heavyweight tournament, while Kongo defeated Javy Ayala via first-round knockout to earn his place as an alternate in the bracket.
