UFC Press Release

Kamaru Usman will defend his UFC welterweight title this Saturday night against Colby Covignton at UFC 245.

The event will be the promotion’s final pay-per-view (PPV) card of the year, going down inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And the two headliners are going to get paid a half a million dollars each for their efforts, according to some of the early payouts reported:

  • Kamaru Usman $500K
  • Colby Covington $500K
  • Max Holloway $350K
  • Alexander Volkanovski $250K
  • Amanda Nunes $350K/$100K (win bonus)
  • Germaine de Randamie $100K
  • Jose Aldo $400K/$50K (win bonus)

  • Petr Yan $66K/$66K (win bonus)
  • Mike Perry $90K/$90K (win bonus)
  • Geoff Neal $31K/$31K (win bonus

While $500,000 is a lot of coin, it’s still peanuts compared to what championship boxers such has Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz command, as they made $85 and $10 million, respectively, for their rematch.
