In just a few hours, the last big draw of the year 2019, UFC 245, will get underway. The salary of the same have been revealed. It is quite surprising to see that the two fighters headlining the main event, Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington, will earn more that two division champ Amanda Nunes and probably one of the greatest UFC featherweights Max Holloway.

The card will be headlined by a clash for welterweight supremacy between current champ Kamaru Usman and former interim champ Colby Covington. Both the fighters will make $500k from the fight. None of them will be entitled to any win bonus whatsoever. This figure won’t include the money that either of them would be making from Reebok sponsorship.

In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski will be looking dethrone Max Holloway from the top of the UFC featherweight pyramid. The undefeated Volkanovski will make $250k from the fight. The champion Holloway will make $350k from the fight. In this case as well, none of them will be receiving any win bonus.

To kick start the triple-header of title fights, Amanda Nunes will meet Germaine de Randamie. The fight would be a rematch from their previous fight from 2013 where Nunes defeated Randamie via a stoppage in the very first round. “The Lioness” will be $350k richer after she enters the Octagon. She will also have the opportunity to take that number up by $100k if she manages to secure a victory. The challenger, Randamie. will only make $100k with no win bonus.
