Nigerian middleweight champion Kamaru Usman is set to make $ 1.5 million after defeating Jorge Masvidal in the second round by knockout at UFC 261 at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday.
The fight, which took place in front of nearly 15,000 fans, was made at the expense of fans who sold out by knocking out their Nigerian opponent in the second round in front of their home fans to retain the UFC title for the fourth time.
According to Sportekz.com, the Nigerian plans to smile at the bank with a surprise $ 1.5 million, while Masvidal will earn $ 900,000 thanks to the high sales of those gathered at the meeting place and Pay Per View.
The Nigerian has a guaranteed $ 750,000 and another $ 60,000 promotional bonus for the fight look. He earned an extra $ 50,000 for himself as his bout was chosen as one of the “Two Shows of the Night,” as did his teammate Rose Namajunas.
Its revenue from PPV should bring its total revenue to $ 1.5 million.
