UFC 196 fighter payouts for those athletes competing at the “McGregor vs. Diaz” pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend (Sat., March 5, 2016) from inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, were released earlier today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Reigning UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor raked in a historic $1 million for less than two rounds of work. Not too shabby when you consider he lost by submission. Nate Diaz, meanwhile, earned his highest paycheck to date with $500,000.

In the UFC 196 co-main event, Holly Holm matched Diaz with a $500,000, then matched McGregor with a submission loss. That makes Miesha Tate the new women’s bantamweight champion, but “Cupcake” is only on the books for $92,000.
