149 0

UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz didn’t go how hardly anyone expected, other than the fighter payroll.

Conor McGregor was the top draw on the disclosed payroll the UFC filed with the Nevada Athletic Commission, becoming the promotion’s first million-dollar man in regards to disclosed payroll.

He was unsuccessful in the Octagon, however, as Nate Diaz derailed the Irishman’s hype train by submitting him in the second round. Diaz was paid a flat fee of $500,000 for his efforts.

In the UFC 196 co-main event, challenger Miesha Tate upset Holly Holm for the women’s bantamweight belt. Holm was paid $500,000 in her losing effort, while Tate netted $92,000 in winning the championship.

The disclosed fighter payroll does not include discretionary bonuses, Reebok apparel bonuses, pay-per-view points, endorsements, or other income not included on bout agreements.

UFC 196: McGregor vs. Diaz took place on Saturday, March 5 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
