Paddy Pimblett says he made ‘$12k to show, $12k to win’ at UFC London


“Twelve and 12,” Pimblett told Barstool Sports, when asked about his UFC London pay. “No, yeah, 12 and 12. So, 12 to show and 12 to win.

“It goes up after every fight, but you’re in a contract, so it’s whenever they want to offer me a new one, they offer me a new one. So, it’s just one of those things.”

The UFC typically hands out three bonuses at a UFC event: one Fight of the Night and two Performance of the Night bonuses.

White was so impressed with how UFC London played out, however, that he chose to give bonuses to all nine fighters who achieved stoppage wins.

Only three of the 12 bouts at the O2 Arena went to the judges’ scorecards.
