Urijah Faber comes out of retirement and dwarfs the UFC on ESPN+ 13 fighter salaries

Germaine de Randamie may have solidified her status as the No. 1 contender in the UFC women’s bantamweight division, but returning UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber lorded over the UFC on ESPN+ 13 payroll.

Former featherweight titleholder de Randamie made insanely quick work of Aspen Ladd in the UFC on ESPN+ 13 main event, knocking her out in a mere 16 seconds. 

Most of the eyes in the arena were on hometown favorite Faber, however, as he took the co-main event slot in his return to the Octagon following a two-and-a-half year retirement.

Faber didn’t take much longer than de Randamie, as he stopped rising bantamweight Ricky Simon 46 seconds into their co-headliner.

Faber dwarfed the payroll that the California State Athletic Commission released to MMAWeekly.com on Monday, earning $340,000 for the victory. He was also awarded a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus, but that doesn’t count as part of his disclosed salary.

de Randamie made $90,000 for her headlining victory, but more importantly, it kept her in the hunt for a shot at UFC champ-champ Amanda Nunes.

The figures in the reported UFC on ESPN+ 13 fighter salaries below represent the disclosed payroll submitted to the California State Athletic Commission. Any other discretionary bonuses, pay-per-view points, etc., are not disclosed to the regulatory body and are not included here.

UFC on ESPN+ 13: de Randamie vs. Ladd took place on Saturday, July 13, at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif.
