Who took home the most money at UFC 214, and who passed the six-figure mark? Find out below.

Daniel Cormier lost the UFC light heavyweight title in his highly-anticipated rematch with Jon Jones in the UFC 214 main event last Saturday in Anaheim, Calif., but he walked away with more disclosed money than anyone on the card — even his bitter rival.

The former champion became only the fifth man in UFC history to earn a disclosed paycheck of $1 million or more in defeat at the event, joining Conor McGregor, Brock Lesnar, Nate Diaz, and Ronda Rousey. MMAFighting.com obtained a document containing purse amounts for all UFC 214 fighters over the weekend.

Jones took home a disclosed $500,000 and was not slated to receive a win bonus.

In the co-main event, welterweight titleholder Tyron Woodley banked a disclosed $500,000 — again, without a win bonus — and his unsuccessful challenger, Demian Maia, took home a disclosed $110,000 in show money.

New featherweight champ Cris Cyborg earned a disclosed $200,000 for her third-round TKO win over Tonya Evinger, who picked up a disclosed $100,000 to show.
