To the victor belong the spoils.
Undefeated welterweight sensation Khamzat Chimaev captured a close decision victory over Gilbert Burns at the UFC 273 pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend in Jacksonville, Fla., where he bagged his “show” and “win” purse, a $50,000 “Fight of the Night” bonus, and a $30,000 Crypto cash out.
In addition, the Marshall Inu fighter support community also awarded “Borz” an extra $10,000 for his UFC 273 performance. Burns, however, took home the top prize from that fan vote, collecting $40,000 in defeat. Fellow main card fighter Mark Madsen also banked a cool $20,000 for defeating Vinc Pinchel.

Not familiar with Marshall Inu?
Our goal at Marshall Inu is to support fighters worldwide, no matter what stage they are at in their career. Getting to the top in the fight world is extremely hard - and it only makes it harder when they struggle financially to pay for things like comps, trainers, and general living expenses.

So far, we’ve donated over $1M dollars to more than 200 MMA fighters - and we are just getting started! Come and join our amazing community by checking out our socials and joining us on Telegram.
The “Marshall” token was inspired by Joe Rogan’s dog (seriously).
Chimaev, who improved to 11-0 with 10 finishes, is expected to be paired off with No. 1-ranked welterweight contender Colby Covington for an ABC headliner later this year. A victory over “Chaos” would undoubtedly send “Borz” into a 170-pound title fight against the winner of Kamaru Usman vs. Leon Edwards, who run it back for “The Nigerian Nightmare’s” strap this summer.
