Jon Jones successfully defended his light heavyweight strap against Dominick Reyes at the main event of UFC 247 on Sunday. However, the light heavyweight champion got slammed by the majority of the MMA community for failing to dominate the fight, as he does usually. No wonder, many people considered Dominick Reyes to be the superior fighter but the judge’s scorecard awarded Jones the victory.
Women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko also defended her title successfully and none of the titleholders had to depart from their belts after the end of UFC 247. In the meantime, UFC fighters have earned a lot more than their belts and victories. MMA Manifesto recently revealed the earnings of fighters from UFC 247 and many fans of the sport are stunned.
However, none of the figures are official since the Texas State Athletic Commission doesn’t release a UFC fighter’s payment info. Take a look at the payment information of UFC 247 headlined by the Jon Jones vs Dominick Reyes fight.
