The main event this weekend is Holly Holm vs. Mayra Bueno Silva. The two will square off in the main event of UFC Vegas 77, hoping to make a statement. So, in preparation for the event, we examine the purse and rewards to determine how much the competitors will make.
Since they are the main event, Holm and Bueno Silva will be the primary focus of the event. However, because the event includes 13 fights, there are many more outstanding fighters on the card. Assessing fighter pay isn’t usually an easy task. This is due to the fact that there are several sources of earnings as well as several terms and conditions.
As per reports of The Sports Daily, Holly Holm will take home the most money at UFC Vegas 77. The former champion is expected to get $211,000. It may be higher if she receives a performance bonus and a victory bonus. Mayra Bueno Silva, her opponent, will receive $106,000 with a $100,000 base salary. She may, however, be eligible for incentives.
Two other talented fighters who were originally set to be the co-main event, Albert Duraev and Jun Yong Park, will win $28,500 and $36,000, respectively. Nora Dumont will make $81,000 on the card, Tyson Nam will earn $50,000, and Terence McKinney will earn $30,000. Jack Della Maddalena made a total of $54,000 in UFC 290, which included $50,000 as the base pay and $5,400 as incentives. The current payout for Maddalena is unknown.
Fighters will earn a minimum of $16,000 at UFC Vegas 77. Furthermore, as part of the sponsorship arrangements, the UFC allocates a total of $138,000 to the competitors. The sum will be determined by the number of UFC fights the fighter has fought in.
Walt Harris pulled from UFC Fight Night: Holly Holm vs. Mayra Bueno Silva
UFC heavyweight Walt Harris has withdrawn from his planned UFC Fight Night match against Josh Parisian this Saturday after testing positive for a prohibited drug, he announced on Twitter on Wednesday.
According to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Harris has been advised of what will happen and is “not eligible to compete” in the UFC until the issue is completed, as per the UFC’s anti-doping rules.
“I believe this came from a supplement that I’ve trusted my entire career, but at the end of the day it was never USADA approved,” stated Harris in the tweet. “I’m a complete idiot for not checking prior, but I’m definitely not a cheater.” He added.
Harris apologized to Parisian and stated that he will work with the UFC and USADA to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Harris (13-10, 1 NC) hasn’t fought since a loss to Marcin Tybura in June 2021. The Alabama native, 40, was looking to end a three-fight losing run.
