UFC 170 fighter payouts for those competing at the "Rousey vs. McMann" pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend (Sat., Feb. 22, 2014) from inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, were released earlier today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).
Ronda Rousey may have been golden in her championship win over Sara McMann (watch it), but it was Daniel Cormier who came away with all the green.
"Rowdy" needed 66 seconds to obliterate the challenger in the main event of the evening -- and banked $110,000 for her efforts. That's a mere 13 seconds less than it took "DC" to grind up coffee house walk-on Patrick Cummins (see it again here), pocketing $160,000 in the process.
That's a lot of lattes.
