Khabib Nurmagomedov Makes more than $10 Million Payout For UFC 242 Win

141_Khabib_Nurmagomedov.0Nurmagomedov has exploded on the UFC win with wins over Connor McGregor and, most recently, Dustin Poirier at UFC 242. While for previous bouts, Khabib earned about $2M, he took home over $10M for his latest fight.

Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, father and coach of Khabib Nurmagomedov, recently discussed with TASS some details regarding his son’s salary. Comparing his son’s pursue to the one paid when Nurmagomedov dispatched super star Conor McGregor, the Nurmagomedov family patriarch stated, “This time, it [the purse] will be 3-3.5-fold higher, We aren’t fighting for peanuts and we know our value. That sum [of $2 million] is too little for us because we are the best at the moment. We have defeated the best and are ready to keep fighting with the best.”

In addition, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov credits his son’s growing popularity for the increase in salary. While it’s hard to say currently whether this estimate is merely base pay or includes PPV points, it’s nice to have a ballpark figure for one half of perhaps the year’s biggest main event.
