UFC Fight Night 96 fighter payouts for those athletes competing at the “Lineker vs. Dodson” mixed martial arts (MMA) event last weekend (Sat., Oct. 1, 2016) from inside Moda Center in Portland, were released on Tuesday by Oregon State Athletic Commission.
Leading the payday way was longtime combat sports veteran Nate Marquardt, who banked $112,000 for knocking out returning “Barn Cat” Tamdan McCrory (watch it). In second place was UFC “Portland” headliner John Lineker, hauling in a reduced payout of $72,000 after failing to make weight.
