    Cris Cyborg cashes $500,000 for first title defense

    UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg led the disclosed payroll at UFC 219, earning $500,000 for her successful title defense against Holly Holm.

    The Nevada Athletic Commission released the event’s finalized salary information in the aftermath of UFC 219.

    Cyborg outpointed Holm to win a unanimous decision and make the first successful defense of her 145-pound belt in the night’s main event. Holm earned $300,000 in a losing effort.

    UFC 219 took place Dec. 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. The night’s main card aired live on pay-per-view.

    The three other UFC 219 fighters who cleared the six-figure mark in earnings were light standout Khabib Nurmagomedov ($160,000) and welterweight contenders Neil Magny ($140,000) and Carlos Condit ($115,000).

    In addition to their commission-reported salaries, Cyborg, Holm, Nurmagomedov, and Tim Elliott also took home $50,000 fight night bonuses for their performances.

    A complete list of the UFC 219 salaries can be seen below. As always, these figures do not represent a fighter's total earnings, as certain sponsorship incomes, pay-per-view earnings or discretionary bonuses are not publicly disclosed.
