This Is How Much Francis Ngannou Was Paid For UFC 270 Main Event
This year’s first big event UFC 270 has concluded. The event offered a long line of action-packed and fast-paced fights, including two exciting title bouts.
In the main event, Francis Ngannou beat Ciryl Gane, with some impressive wrestling. The knockout talent Ngannou managed to implement a wrestling-focused strategy against the well-rounded Gane. The heavyweight champion eventually defended the title via decision, which will be his first win where he did not finish the opponent.
The main card featured a flyweight war between Brandon Moreno and the new champion Deiveson Figueiredo. The co-main fight between the athletes was incredibly even, but in the end Figueiredo managed to take home both the victory and the belt.
Before UFC 270, Ngannou was clear that he would not fight for low purses in the future. He wants to get a million dollars from the UFC. So he says he will not compete for $ 600,000 again, which he did at UFC 270.
Now the figures for fighter salaries at the event have been awarded. No fighter on the card reached the one million dollar mark, but the numbers below do not include any payouts for bonuses, sponsors, pay-per-view revenue share for the champions etc – strictly purse.
