Robbie Lawler

Robbie Lawler is returning to Florida armed with the UFC’s welterweight belt, as well as the biggest check from Saturday’s card.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the salary figures for UFC 195, and the numbers indicate that Lawler was paid $500,000 for his split decision win over Carlos Condit. The latter took home $315,000.

The card’s third highest earner was former heavyweight champ Andrei Arlovski, who was paid $250,000 for his stoppage loss to Stipe Miocic. Mr. Miocic collected $120,000 for the win.

Here are the salary figures that were given to the NSAC by the UFC. They do not include any additional money a fighter may have earned through sponsorships or pay-per-view dividends (figures via MMA Fighting.com):
