Andrei Arlovski, Glover Teixeira lead salaries at UFC Fight Night from Fort Lauderdale

April 30, 2019

Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza suffered a heartbreaking setback this past Saturday night when his dreams of a title shot disappeared after suffering a five round decision loss to Jack Hermansson in the main event at UFC Fight Night from Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

While he didn’t come away with the win, Souza still went home with the second biggest paycheck for any of the fighters on the card earning $210,000 for his performance.

Former light heavyweight title contender Glover Teixeira matched Souza with his salary after he took home $210,000 for his win over Ion Cutelaba on the main card.

Teixeira also earned a $50,000 bonus for ‘Performance of the Night’.

The highest paid fighter on the entire card was former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski, who took home $300,000 as a flat fee in a losing effort to Augusto Sakai on the preliminary card.

The full salaries were revealed on Tuesday by the Florida State Boxing Commission.

For his part in the main event, Hermansson took home $82,000 for his winning effort as he looks to join the top five rankings in the middleweight division following his latest victory.

Former NFL player and second time UFC fighter Greg Hardy also took home a six-figure paycheck after he earned $150,000 for his lopsided victory against Dmitri Smoliakov.

Smoliakov took home $10,000 in a losing effort in the co-main event.
