The official payouts for UFC Jacksonville were recently released by Florida State Boxing Commission for those fighters competing at the “Teixeira vs Smith” event, held last night (Weds., May 13, 2020) inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

Andrei Arlovski was the top earner of the night, pulling in $325,000 for his unanimous decision win over fellow Heavyweight banger, Philipe Lins, who took home $80,000 for his loss in what was his Octagon debut.
