UFC Fight Night, or UFC Vegas 48, from Saturday, February 19th was an exciting fight card. The main card had it all, with fights going to decision, a submission and a couple of knockouts. It was capped off with the Main Event between Johnny Walker and Jamahal Hill. After winning by knockout, many have been asking how much did Jamahal Hill make? Let’s take a look at the full UFC payouts from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night.
UFC Fight Night Payouts and Win Bonuses
The official UFC Fight Night payouts are not released, since the Nevada Athletic Commission doesn’t release figher pay info. In other words, the following numbers are not official. However, we can make an accurate estimation based on past UFC payouts and other information we know about the fighters.
We do know debut fighters will make $12,000 plus fight week incentives.
The pay below includes the guaranteed amount and fight week incentives in one column, then win bonuses in the other. Other UFC Vegas 48 payout bonuses are outlined below.
|Abdul Razak Alhassan||$50,000|
|Gloria de Paula||$16,000||X|
UFC Fight Night Bonuses
Much like other events, UFC bonuses of $50,000 are given out. However, there were no “Fight of the Night” bonuses given during UFC Vegas 48. Instead, there were four UFC performance bonuses.
Performance Bonuses: Jamahal Hill, Kyle Daukaus, David Onama, Stephanie Egger
Jamahal Hill defeated Johnny Walker by knockout in the first round. In the post-fight interview, he told us to call him “Main Event ‘Mal,” and it’s tough to argue with that nickname. Of course, his other nickname of “Sweet Dreams” is also fitting.
In the co-main event, Kyle Daukaus had the equivalent of a buzzer-beater. At 4:59 in the first round, he submitted Jamie Pickett.
David Onama won his first UFC fight by knockout tonight, putting Gabriel Benitez to sleep at the end of the first round.
Stephanie Egger also finished her fight in the first round, submitting Jessica-Rose Clark with an armbar.
How Much Did Jamahal Hill Make?
In the main event of the night, Jamahal Hill made quick work of Johnny Walker, knocking him out in just over two minutes. With a statement win like that, it makes sense why people are asking how much did Jamahal Hill make from his UFC payouts on Saturday.
The official answer is unclear. Since the Nevada Athletic Commission doesn’t release fighter pay info, we can only estimate based on past pay that has been publicized.
With this in mind, we can estimate Jamahal Hill made around $60,000 in guaranteed salary and $6,000 for fight week incentives before stelling in the octagon. Because he won, his UFC payouts nearly doubled by doubling his guaranteed money as a win bonus. He also walked away with a $50,000 performance bonus.
Again, as always, the official numbers will not be officially known, but these UFC payouts from UFC Fight Night on Saturday are a strong estimation.
