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 do multiple fighters that get a Performance of the Night bonus.

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.

How Much Did Glover Teixeira Make? | Salary From UFC 283

In the main event of the night, Round 1 gave us a relatively even bout. However, a big head kick in Round 2 from Jamahal Hill had Glover Teixeira on the ropes, looking like the fight would be over quickly. Teixeira landed a couple of big shots of his own and got the fight to the mat, getting himself back in the fight, until a Round 3 kick to the head split Teixeira open.

Against all odds, the match went the distance. While Teixeira did have brief moments of fighting back, it was an overall dominant display from Hill the rest of the way. But after the loss in Brazil, many are asking how much did Glover Teixeira get paid?

Glover Teixeira is coming away from UFC 283 with a very large payday. In fact, it appears he knew he would make over a million dollars in UFC 283 payouts and bonuses regardless of the outcome. Teixeira should make at least a million dollars between his salary and cut from the PPV revenue. 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.
