The payouts have been released for Saturday night’s UFC 226 card in Las Vegas, and unsurprisingly the top earner on the card is heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, who gets a career-high $750,000, with no win bonus. Miocic recently said he’s finally happy with his pay, and presumably he’s also getting pay-per-view points. Daniel Cormier is the second-highest earner at $500,000 + PPV points.

For the record, had Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega gone on as planned, Holloway would’ve had a $350,000 salary (no win bonus), while Ortega was on a flat $250,000.
