AND NEWWWWWW (KINDA)…. Ciryl Gane got sorta UFC gold in Houston at UFC 265 and was one of the event’s top earners.

Before we go any further, we should note that the  Texas State  Athletic  Commission doesn’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official.  However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 26 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.

 

Attendance:   16,604
Gate:   $3,460,000
