The Nevada State Athletic Commission released purse figures Monday. The commission figures do not tell the whole compensation story since the UFC, a private company, does not release all its bonus and contract details. Jones, for example, would likely have collected a cut of the lucrative pay-per-view revenue which UFC president Dana White said exceeded 750,000 buys.
Cormier got $90,0000, missing out on a matching win bonus.
Both main event fighters Saturday picked up an additional $50,000 for fight of the night.
Lightweight Donald (Cowboy) Cerrone earned $140,000, including a $70,000 win bonus for defeating Myles (Fury) Jury ($16,000) in the co-main event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Welterweight Hector Lombard made $106,000 for his win over Josh Burkman ($45,000).
At the other end of the scale, UFC newcomer Jared (Tha Killa Gorilla) Cannonier made $8,000 in a knockout loss to Shawn Jordan ($94,000 including a $50,000 performance bonus).
Cannonier took two months off from his job repairing air traffic control equipment for the Federal Aviation Administration to prepare for the fight. The Alaska-based heavyweight raised more than $6,000 for his training camp in Arizona via gofundme.com.
