New, comments

Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) previously released the salaries and payouts for the main card fighters of UFC 235, and now it’s back for the entire fight card for those combatants participating at the “Jones vs. Smith” mixed martial arts (MMA) event last Sat. night (March 2, 2019) in Las Vegas.

Leading the payday way was light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who along with former welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, walked home with a nifty $500,000 for doing 25 minutes of work at last weekend’s “Sin City” pay-per-view (PPV) event.
