The fighters of today’s UFC 264, who will show the most spectacular performances, will be able to earn an additional 75 thousand dollars, instead of the usual 50.
Usually, four fighters take home an announced bonus in the form of “Fight of the Night” bonus for both competitors in the best contest of the evening along with two “Performance of the Night” winners. If there is no one fight that is awarded a bonus, the promotion often chooses four individual fight winners to take home an extra paycheck for their efforts inside the cage.
Following a request from Tony Ferguson at the UFC 262 press conference, Dana White increased the bonuses for that pay-per-view event as well. With McGregor bringing in an increased cash flow for UFC 264, the same will apply on Saturday, according to chief business officer Hunter Campbell.
UFC 264 takes place on Saturday, July 10 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and will air on ESPN+ pay-per-view.
