Payouts! ‘Diamond’ Worth $170k For Glendale TKO

Dustin Poirier had a pretty good weekend, financially speaking.

His technical knockout win over Justin Gaethje in the UFC on FOX 29 main event (see it), which took place last Saturday night (April 14, 2018) inside Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona, returned a $50,000 check for “Fight of the Night,” $20,000 for wearing that crap from Reebok, and another $170,000 for winning big.

I’m sure it makes that sausage leg (see it) feel much better.

Gaethje didn’t do so bad himself, though I’m sure the win would have been much more comforting than the $110,000 he banked for showing up. Same goes for Carlos Condit, who took home $115,000 after being subbed by Alex Oliveira (replay).
