Khabib Rakes In Career-high $6.1 Million Payout For Beating Justin Gaethje At UFC 254

Khabib Nurmagomedov stunned fans after he announced his retirement following his win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. The 32-year-old Russian fighter dominated The Highlight, forcing him to tap out to a triangle choke early in Round 2. With a win at UFC 254, Khabib Nurmagomedov is leaving the sport with an immaculate 29-0 record, out of which 13 wins came in the UFC. Khabib also defended his lightweight title three times, having won the vacant title in April 2018.

UFC 254 payouts

According to online estimates, Khabib Nurmagomedov raked in a career-high over $6 million for his win against Justin Gaethje on Saturday. Entering as the defending champion for the bout, the Khabib payout for the fight alone was $6 million. He took home another $50,000 as Performance of the Night bonus, while he also netted another $40,000 as fight week incentive pay. This means the total Khabib payout, as estimated so far, stands at $6,090,000. Khabib's total payout will be even higher after his share from his pay-per-view clause is taken into account. 

So far, Khabib's nearly $6.1 million dollar payout is slightly higher than his earnings for beating Dustin Poirier in 2019. It comfortably dwarfs the $2 million he raked in for his bout against Conor McGregor in 2018. Despite losing the fight to Khabib, McGregor earned $3 million for the fight. The Irishman earned a similar amount for his win against Donald Cerrone at the start of the year.

Meanwhile, Justin Gaethje earned a little more than $400,000 for his title unification bout in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

Khabib vs Gaethje full fight

Khabib started his fights against Gaethje with a strong striking display, connecting several strikes and completing one takedown in Round 1. Gaethje too enjoyed a decent offensive performance as he managed to hurt the champ with several strikes to his left leg. Gaethje began Round 2 with another strong strike to Khabib's leg which momentarily left the Russian off-balance.

The champ, however, soon recovered with his trademark takedown, dominating Gaethje in the corner. Khabib quickly managed to execute a triangle choke on his opponent which sent Gaethje to sleep. The referee stopped the fight with 1:34 left in the second round. 

Khabib quickly turned emotional as he wept in the centre of the ring after winning his first professional bout without his father, Abdulmanap, standing ringside. The 32-year-old went on to announce his retirement, citing a promise made to his mother, which he intends to keep.

Khabib notched 29 wins in his professional career, losing none. He won the lightweight title in 2018, beating Al Iaquinta for the vacant belt. Khabib went onto successfully defend his title against Conor McGregor in 2018 before he scored a win over Poirier last year. The 32-year-old, who will likely be the No.1 pound for pound fighter in the UFC after he recent win, was labelled as G.O.A.T by UFC president Dana White.

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Justin Gaethje purse, salaries: How much money will they make at UFC 254?

Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje will face off in UFC 254 on Saturday in a massive — and profitable — lightweight unification bout.

For the first time in their respective careers, Nurmagomedov (28-0, 8 KOs) will face off against Gaethje (22-2, 19 KOs) in the night's main card. The fight will take place in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates: a long-coming, lucrative bout for both fighters.

Gaethje represents the second consecutive interim champion Nurmagomedov will fight in a bid to unify his belt, won in April 2018 over Al Iaquinta; he previously beat Dustin Poirier via submission in September 2019. (Coincidentally, Poirier has already beaten Gaethje via fourth-round TKO, also in April 2018).

Will Gaethje be able to unseat Nurmagomedov to unify the belt for himself? Or will Nurmagomedov take it over once and for all? Either way, both fighters should make bank off their supersized bout. Here's everything you need to know about the money Nurmagomedov and Gaethje stand to make at UFC 254:

UFC 254 purse, prize money

We won't know the full purse and prize money for UFC 254 until after Saturday's fight. That said, both fighters' most recent bouts suggest their Saturday matchup will be plenty profitable (especially Nurmagomedov). Here are the reported earnings from their most previous fights at UFC 242 and 249, respectively:

Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 242: $6 million*

Justin Gaethje at UFC 249: $3.318 million**

Gaethje ($350,000) def. Tony Ferguson ($500,000)

What is Khabib Nurmagomedov's net worth?

Nurmagomedov's net worth is listed at $30 million, per Celebrity Net Worth. His father, however, told The Daily Mail in April 2020 that his son was worth $100 million. Forbes reported that the fighter raked in $16.5 million in the 2019-20 fiscal year.

What is Justin Gaethje's net worth?

Celebrity Net Worth lists Gaethje's net worth at $2 million as of 2020. SPORKETZ reports that his net worth is $3 million.

Khabib Nurmagomedov's career record

The reigning lightweight champion enters his bout with Gaethje with a 28-0 record: eight via KO, 10 by submission and 10 by unanimous decision. He won the vacant lightweight belt against Iaquinta in 2018 at UFC 223, defending it against Conor McGregor the following October at UFC 229 and Poirier in September 2019 at UFC 242. Gaethje will represent his third title defense and third straight fighter who has held at least the interim lightweight championship.

Justin Gaethje's career record

Gaethje boasts a 22-2 record. Nineteen of his wins were by KO; two were by submission, and one was by unanimous decision. He suffered back-to-back losses in December 2017 and April 2018 to Eddie Alvarez (KO) and Poirier (TKO), respectively, but has since won four straight. Gaethje earned his interim title against Tony Ferguson in May, ending his 12-fight undefeated streak. Ferguson originally was slated to fight Nurmagomedov in April, but the latter backed out of his fight as Russia was restricting air travel amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

UFC paydays: How much did Conor McGregor make vs Khabib Nurmagomedov?

Irish Megastar Conor McGregor made $3 Million as disclosed salary in his losing effort against Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, the endorsement deals and pay-per-view points pushed his total earnings from the bout to an estimated sum of $50 Million.

Conor McGregor fought UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the headliner of the UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) event in October 2018. Estimated to have crossed 2.4 million PPV buys, UFC 229 is the highest-grossing MMA event of all time.

Conor McGregor's $3 Million disclosed salary was the highest in MMA history at the time.

Conor McGregor's opponent Khabib Nurmagomedov earned the disclosed salary of $2 Million at UFC 229. However, both fighters had to pay a fine to the Nevada State Athletic Commission due to the post-fight brawl that ensued after Khabib's submission win over McGregor in Round 4.

Khabib received a heavier penalty with a $500,000 fine and nine-month suspension while McGregor received a $50,000 fine and a six-month suspension.

The financial implications of Conor McGregor's rise in the UFC are huge

Before Conor McGregor's emergence on the UFC horizon, the promotion was home to pay-per-view stars like Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva, Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell and Brock Lesnar. All of them contributed to the growth of the sport in their own right and helped it become mainstream.

However, Conor McGregor's arrival and subsequent rise to stardom changed MMA forever as the Irishman brought a worldwide fan base to the sport and helped the UFC become a truly global phenomenon.

Even after a two-year hiatus from MMA in 2017-2018 and a less-active recent fighting career, Conor McGregor's name is one of the biggest brands in the combat sports world.

Conor McGregor's last fight was a second-round knockout loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 in January 2021. McGregor's impending trilogy fight against Poirier is an intriguing affair as it will answer a lot of questions about his fighting future.

Khabib Nurmagomedov made more money than Conor McGregor in 2020 but Notorious set to earn even more for next few fights starting with Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor is the undisputed box office king in mixed martial arts and that’s likely to be a record he can hold for decades to come, maybe centuries.

He has truly changed the game for UFC, but he wasn’t their highest paid star in 2020.

No, that honour goes to his deeply bitter rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Russian retired after defeating Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 and, like McGregor, that was his only outing of 2020.

The Irishman faced Donald Cerrone last January and that was the UFC’s most bought pay-per-view of the year, beating Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman’s Fight Island showdown by $50,000.

A look at UFC’s top selling PPVs in 2020



Khabib’s outing with Gaethje drew $675k and that ranked fifth on UFC’s yearly list, but is half of what McGregor/Cerrone did.

And yet, Khabib took home $6,090,000 – $3m more than McGregor, who is back in action this month.

MMA Breakdown have provided the numbers, but the context is important. This is the disclosed pay. It’s the reported salaries plus Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night bonuses that have been made public, along with Reebok payouts, now known as fight week incentive pay.

As CM Punk has alluded to recently, it’s quite well known that UFC President Dana White will give bonuses at his discretion, too.

One has to think McGregor enjoys them every time he steps inside the octagon, let alone the fruits of his work via other sponsors.

Ahead of Cerrone at UFC 246, McGregor estimated that he would make $80m (£61m) from the fight.

“We’ve got Australia, Canada, England and Ireland… it should be a good one,” he said.

“[For Khabib Nurmagomedov] I made $50m. They think I’m toast, but I’m still the bread!”

UFC rich list for 2020

2Conor McGregor $3,060,000
3Junior dos Santos $1,560,000
4Israel Adesanya $1,230,000

9Alistair Overeem $   830,000
10Stipe Miocic $   790,000


Valentina Shevchenko was the highest-earning woman on the list, but she was 25th overall with $550,000.

Masvidal ranked joint-29th on the list with Daniel Cormier as they took home $530,000. One has to assume with Masvidal taking the Usman fight on six days notice and Cormier making his last appearance before retiring, they made much more than that.

Interestingly, Cole Williams was the lowest earner with just $9,500.
