Makhachev called the approximate amount of fees for the fight with Volkanovski

UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev told he won for the fight with the Aussie Alexander Volkanovski less than a million dollars.

At the same time, the Russian pointed out that the amount could change after the UFC calculates paid show sales and Makhachev’s share as the champion who defended the belt. Islam made his first UFC lightweight title defense in February, defeating Volkanovski by unanimous decision.

– My guaranteed commission does not reach this amount [речь про один миллион долларов]. Now they are going to calculate paid show revenue, I don’t know how long, because this is my first time fighting for money, where PPV is taken into account. I don’t know how much the costs will be. But here we have to take into account that in Australia the taxes are very high, and I leave a large sum there,” Makhachev told .

The Russian fighter has been performing in the UFC since 2015, Makhachev’s last officially released payment was $211,000 for the fight with Bobby Green in February 2022. The Russian fighter’s additional fee has not been officially released.
