Dana White hands out Three discretionary bonuses after $600k goes to Holloway

UFC 300 was a historic event that delivered some of the most memorable moments in combat sports history. In the main event, Max Holloway earned a disastrous knockout win over Justin Gaethje to take home $600,000 in bonus money, tying the UFC record for the largest single-fight bonus payout.

However, Holloway wasn’t the only star rewarded for their performance. During the press conference, UFC President Dana White revealed he would be handing out three additional discretionary bonuses to stars who played a part in making UFC 300 an unforgettable night.

“This was one of those special nights,” White stated. “I’m gonna take care of Figueroa. I’ll take care of Diego Lopes, Figueiredo, Kayla Harrison. Take care of those guys too. We’re gonna make sure everybody leaves here in a good mood and feeling like they got what they deserved.”

Figueiredo, Harrison, and Diego Lopesall had impressive performances earlier on the card. Harrison, the former PFL champion making her UFC debut, gave former champion Holly Holm everything she could handle in a closely contested bout.

While White didn’t disclose the exact bonus amounts for those stars, the discretionary payouts are a gesture of appreciation for their contributions to this landmark UFC event. The bonuses allow the UFC to compensate athletes above and beyond their contracted purse amounts for extraordinary displays inside the Octagon.

With record-breaking attendance, an incredible night of action from start to finish, and the fifth-highest gate in company history, Dana White and the UFC staff had plenty of reasons to celebrate UFC 300 as a massive success. Handing out bonus compensation was just one way to make this event truly special for all involved.
