UFC Columbus salaries revealed: Curtis Blaydes takes home biggest purse


Curtis Blaydes, UFC Columbus

The salaries from UFC Columbus have been revealed and Curtis Blaydes made the most amount of money.

Recently, more and more commissions are keeping the salaries private, but Ohio is one of the few states that disclose the pay. In the main event of UFC Columbus, Curtis Blaydes scored a second-round TKO over Chris Daukaus. For his efforts, ‘Razor’ took home the biggest purse of any fighter featured on the card, pocketing a cool $312k. Daukaus, meanwhile, was paid $80k in defeat.

Making the second-most money on the card was Neil Magny, who banked $230k for his split decision win over Max Griffin. ‘Pain’, on the other hand, took home just $53,000 for his efforts. Of note, only three other fighters made over $100k as Matt Brown took home $155k, Kai Kara-France banked $102k and Chris Gutierrez earned $122k, including the 50k performance bonus. One notable salary is Askar Askarov, who was the second ranked flyweight prior to UFC Columbus and was only paid $26k for his presumed title eliminator bout.
