Bellator middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi was one of five fighters to clear the six-figure mark in earnings at Bellator 206.

The California State Athletic Commission released the event’s finalized disclosed payroll to MMA Fighting over the weekend.

Mousasi defeated Bellator welterweight titleholder Rory MacDonald via second-round TKO to defend his middleweight strap in the champion vs. champion main event of Bellator 206.
