UFC 283 Bonuses | UFC Payouts

Much like other events, UFC bonuses of $50,000 are given out. Both fighters in the Fight of the Night get a greater UFC payout, as two fighters get a Performance of the Night bonus. Of course, as with everything that occurs in the UFC, Dana White has the ability to do what he wants, as shown by the extra UFC bonuses we saw in the last PPV.

These are the UFC 283 bonuses, awarding each fighter with an extra $50,000.

Fight of the Night: Glover Teixeira vs Jamahal Hill

With two fantastic fights to end the card, both were worthy to win UFC 283 Fight of the Night. However, in the end, Glover Teixeira vs Jamahal Hill for the Light Heavyweight Championship gets the recognition, with each fighter getting a bonus $50,000.

It was unexpected that these two would go a full five rounds, but that is exactly what they did. On top of that, Teixeira fought to the bitter end, showing there was no quit in the man. That became a bit ironic, however, as Glover Teixeira announced his retirement following the fight.

Performance Bonuses: Ismael Bonfim and Jailton Almeida

Ismael Bonfim ended his fight against Terrance McKinney mid-second round with an incredible flying knee.

Jailton Almeida won by knockout as well, finishing Shamil Abdurakhimov with punches on the ground.

UFC 283 Promotional Guidelines Compliance Pay

Finally, we also have UFC 274 Promotional Guidelines Compliance pay. This program includes media obligations, outfitting requirements and other code of conduct factors.

Under the UFC Promotional Guidelines Compliance program’s explanation, the payout tiers are broken down by the number UFC fights. Fighters with 1-3 bouts receive $4,000 per appearance; 4-5 bouts get $4,500; 6-10 bouts get $6,000; 11-15 bouts earn $11,000; 16-20 bouts pocket $16,000; and 21 bouts and more get $21,000. Additionally, champions earn $42,000 while title challengers get $32,000.

Additionally, UFC fighters receive royalty payments in perpetuity equalling 20-30 percent of any UFC merchandise sold that bears their likeness.

How Much Did Brandon Moreno Make? | Salary From UFC 283

In the co-main event of the night, Brandon Moreno came out aggressive in hostile territory. However, Deiveson Figueiredo was able to get back to his feet and keep the fight relatively even for the next couple of rounds, until Moreno split the eye of Figueiredo in Round 3. The eye was fully closed heading into Round 4, causing the doctors to call the fight off.

The stoppage seems to be a lackluster finish to a four-fight series between two great fighters. However, after a big win and officially being named the champion, many are wondering how much did Brandon Moreno get paid.

Brandon Moreno is coming away from UFC 283 with a very large payday. In fact, it appears he knew he would make three-quarters of a million dollars in UFC 283 payouts and bonuses regardless of the outcome. Moreno should make that much between his salary and cut from the PPV revenue. However, Moreno received an estimated $100,000 from a win bonus as well. He also receives $32,000 from the UFC 283 Promotional Guidelines Compliance Pay and more from sponsorship money.

As always, the official numbers will not be officially known, but these UFC payouts from UFC 283 on Saturday are a strong estimation.
