UFC 209 Fighter Salaries Overshadow Gate Receipts | MMAWeekly.com

The UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson 2 total disclosed fighter payroll outweighed the event’s total ticket take at the gate.

The UFC 209 payroll, as it was recorded with the Nevada Athletic Commission, was $3.075 million, while the announced gate for the event was $2.385 million.

There were two fighters on the list that sat above main event winner UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, who was paid a disclosed amount of $500,000 for narrowly defeating Stephen Thompson. Thompson pay was listed as $380,000.

Alistair Overeem knocked out Mark Hunt in the final round of their three-round pay-per-view opener. Each man was paid a $750,000 flat rate for the fight, meaning neither was eligible for a win bonus.

Not included in the official payouts listed below was Tony Ferguson, who was paid his $250,000 show money, after his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov was canceled. Ferguson made weight on Friday, but Nurmagomedov failed to appear at the weigh-in after doctors deemed him medically unfit to fight following a difficult weight cut.

UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson 2 took place on Saturday, March 4, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
