Dustin Poirier returned to the win column and also walked away the highest earner at UFC Vegas 4 this past weekend.
Poirier fought Dan Hooker to a back-and-forth war in the main event in what many are considering a Fight of the Year candidate. In the end, “The Diamond” returned to the win column with the unanimous decision verdict.
For his efforts, he also went home with the biggest paycheck as he earned an event-high $300,000. In addition, the Fight of the Night bonus takes his total earnings to $350,000. Hooker, meanwhile, earned a show bonus of $110,000 while his total earnings went up to $160,000 with the Fight of the Night bonus.
Welterweight Mike Perry was the second-highest earner with a $180,000 payday following his unanimous decision win over Mickey Gall. Gall went home with $50,000.
