LAS VEGAS – Not only can Tony Ferguson or Kevin Lee walk away from UFC 216 with an interim championship belt, but they have an opportunity to add a solid amount to their worth.

Ferguson (22-3 MMA, 12-1 UFC) and Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC), who meet in tonight’s pay-per-view headliner at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas following prelims on FX and UFC Fight Pass, will each receive a show purse of $250,000. Ferguson can double that amount with a win, while Lee can get another $50,000.

MMAjunkie tonight obtained the UFC 216 salaries from a Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) official during the event.

The largest base pay on the card goes to UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson (26-2-1 MMA, 14-1-1 UFC). “Mighty Mouse” will receive $370,000 win or lose, but reportedly also has the opportunity for pay-per-view points for the first time in his career. Challenger Ray Borg (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) has a flat payment of $100,000.

Other notable payouts on the UFC 216 main card go to former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum (21-7-1 MMA, 9-4 UFC), who has a contracted show purse of $275,000 with another $125,000 up for grabs with a win. Walt Harris (10-5 MMA, 3-4 UFC), who was moved up the card as Werdum’s opponent when Derrick Lewis withdrew from the event just hours prior to its start, will make $28,000 to show with another $28,000 possible with a win.
