UFC 295: How much money will Tom Aspinall, Sergei Pavlovich, and the UFC 295 purse bring in?
Estimating fighters’ payouts and purses is not an easy task. Fighters are rarely willing to reveal their contract information and there are many conditions that go along with a fight purse. With the help of rumors and reports we can come up with a reasonable ballpark figure.
According to some reports, Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall will both earn $256,000 at UFC 295. This is the base pay, and they may also receive a win bonus or performance bonus. This could increase their earnings to $400,000.
However, in his last fight, Sergei Pavlovich earned a reported $465,000. This included a base salary of $350,000, a $100,000 bonus for winning, and a sponsorship fee of $15,000. If he was on the same contract he would earn close to $5000 with a possible $50,000 performance bonus.
Aspinall, on the other hand, earned $375,000 for his last fight against Marcin Tybura. This included his base pay of $210,000, $100,000 win bonus and $50,000 performance bonus. He also received a $5000 share in sponsorship. If the contract is the same, he will be able to earn around $375,000 in UFC 295.
It is therefore clear that the winner’s bonus will be the difference in earnings between the two fighters. So, whoever wins the fight between Tom Aspinall and Sergei Pavlovich will earn more.
