These figures released by the California State Athletic Commission do not reflect any additional off the books bonuses or pay-per-view revenue earned by the fighters on the card.

In the co-main event, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley walked away with $500,000 for his win over Demian Maia, who earned $110,000 in a losing effort.
