The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has released the full payouts for the disclosed amounts each fighter made for their respective fight at Bellator 290, which went down last night (Sat., Feb, 4, 2023) in Los Angeles, California.
Leading the way was event headliner, Ryan Bader, who earned a $150,000 payday for annihilating Fedor Emelianenko in the headlining championship bout (see it again here). For his efforts, “The Last Emperor” was paid $100K. Middleweight champion, Johnny Eblen also took home $150,000 for his back-and-forth brawl against Anatoly Tokov, who cashed in $75,000.
Before we show you the rest of the payouts, keep in mind that this does not reflect what each fighter may have made once the final tallies are in, and longtime MMA veteran and current Bellator analyst, Josh Thompson was quick to remind fight fans and the media of that.
