UFC 264 went down on Saturday and there was a lot of money to split up. While fighters take home money in different ways during a UFC event, their compliance pay amounts are in.

According to MMA Junkie, UFC 264 broughtin $218,000 in total for their Promotional Guidelines Compliance pay. This is separate from other streams of revenue that fighters have, but the amounts are interesting.

The compliance program includes media obligations, outfitting requirements, and other items under the fighter code of conduct. These payouts replace the previous ones made under the UFC Athlete Outfitting Policy.

Conor McGregor only took home $11,000 to Dustin Poirier’s $21,000. Jessica Eye, who made headlines after her insane forehead cut at UFC 264, also pulled in $11,000 to her opponent Jennifer Maia’s $6,000.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
