Even though Conor McGregor lost for his first time in the Octagon on Saturday night, he still walked away from UFC 196 in Las Vegas with the biggest, most substantial pay check - $1 million, flat.
The man who defeated him, Nate Diaz, made less money than McGregor - $500,000 - and he didn't walk away with a win-bonus, but there was definitely a lot of value in his win. He'll be top-of-mind for the powers-that-be at the UFC, and you've got to imagine that he will now get a shot at the welterweight belt. Robbie Lawler at UFC 200, perhaps?
Anyway, here's the entire list of salaries from UFC 196:
Nate Diaz: $500,000
Conor McGregor: $1,000,000
Miesha Tate: $92,000 (includes $46,000 win bonus)
Holly Holm: $500,000
