UFC 227 fight purses, Reebok payouts: Dillashaw, ‘Mighty Mouse’ both bank $470K

With great performances scattered throughout UFC 227’s card last night (Sat., Aug. 4, 2018) from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., a bunch of fighters were owed some pretty big paychecks.

While the full list of purses are unknown at this time, Lance Pugmire of the Los Angeles Times was able to confirm the official payouts for T.J. Dillashaw, Cody Garbrandt, Demetrious Johnson, and Henry Cejudo.

For his first-round knockout win over “No Love,” Dillashaw banked $380,000. Garbrandt, on the other hand, brought in $200,000. For his upset title victory over “Mighty Mouse,” Cejudo walked away with $100,000. Johnson, despite losing for the first time in seven years, banked $380,000.

On top of the fight purses, UFC 227’s combatants scored additional cash under the UFC’s Promotional Guidelines Compliance payout system, a.k.a Reebok.

Here’s the official Reebok payout list according to MMAjunkie:

T.J. Dillashaw: $40,000
Cody Garbrandt: $30,000
Henry Cejudo: $30,000
Demetrious Johnson: $40,000
Renato Moicano: $5,000
Cub Swanson: $20,000
J.J. Aldrich: $4,000
Polyana Viana: $3,500
Thiago “Marreta” Santos: $10,000
Kevin Holland: $3,500
Pedro Munhoz: $5,000
Brett Johns: $4,000
Ricky Simon: $3,500
Montel Jackson: $3,500
Ricardo Ramos: $3,500
Kyung Ho Kang: $5,000
Sheymon Moraes: $3,500
Matt Sayles: $3,500
Alex Perez: $3,500
Jose Torres: $3,500
Weili Zhang: $3,500
Danielle Taylor: $4,000
Marlon Vera: $5,000
Wuliji Buren: $3,500

With an additional $50,000 from their post-fight bonuses, Dillashaw and Johnson walk out of Los Angeles with a total of $470,000. That’s before any compensation drawn from merchandise revenue and pay-per-view (PPV) buys.

The payouts were well worth it if you ask me, especially considering the main and co-main event delivered absolute fireworks.
