UFC 287 Purse and Payout: How much will Jorge Masvidal and Gilbert Burns earn?

According to reports, Gilbert Burns took home $366,000 for his last fight against Khamzat Chimaev. This included his $150,000 base pay + $150,000 win bonus. Despite losing the fight, Burns got his win bonus too. It also included a performance bonus and sponsorship share. Therefore, in this, Gilbert Burns could earn close to $400,000 if he can beat Jorge Masvidal and get a performance bonus.

Jorge Masvidal, on the other hand, took home $871,000 in his last fight. Despite losing to Colby Covington, Masvidal earned $400,000 as base pay, $400,000 as PPV share, $50,000 as a performance bonus, and the remaining as sponsorships. Therefore, if he can beat Gilbert Burns, Masvidal can earn close to $1 million. His base pay + win bonus will guarantee him $800,000.
