UFC 264 took place this weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada with all the fighters involved earning plenty from the event as you’d expect.

The most anticipated fight of the event was between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier in the lightweight category, with the latter winning via doctor’s stoppage after his opponent was unable to continue due to a leg injury.

Gilbert Burns defeated Stephen Thompson via unanimous decision in the welterweight category, while Tai Tuivasa knocked out Greg Hardy in heavyweight. Sean O’Malley won over Kris Moutinho in bantamweight, while Irene Aldana defeated Yana Kunitskaya in catchweight.

A total of 24 fighters competed at UFC 264 and all of them were paid well.

Despite losing, however, McGregor still took home a lot more than Poirier.
