Twenty fighters competed last Friday Bellator 292 with titleholders citing all disclosed payouts.
California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) executive director Andy Foster released a full list of fighter payouts to MMA Junkie on Thursday. Amounts reflect disclosed payouts only and do not include non-contractual bonuses, sponsorship payments or voluntary bonuses.
Three out of five fighters who pocketed six-figure paydays took first place on the list with $150,000. Lightweight Champion Usman Nurmagomedov (17-0 MMA, 6-0 BMMA) submitted Benson Henderson (30-12 MMA, 7-7 BMMA) in the main event, which was also the opening round of Bellator’s Lightweight Grand Prix.
Both Nurmagomedov and Henderson have earned a disclosed lump sum of $150,000 for their fights, win or lose. The other $150,000 recipient was Alexander Shabliy (23-3 MMA, 4-0 BMMA), who won $75,000 and a $75,000 win bonus for his win over Tofiq Musayev (20-5 MMA, 1-1 BMMA) received rounds at the opening of the tournament.
