UFC Fight Night 120 took place last weekend in Norfolk, Virginia, with Dustin Poirier delivering an incredible performance in his main event victory over former lightweight champion Anthony Pettis. The bout was awarded Fight of the Night honors. 

On Wednesday, the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation released the fighter salaries from the event. 

Coming away from the night as the top earner was veteran heavyweight Andrei Arlovski, who received a flat rate of $250,000 for his win over Junior Albini. 

Albini received just $12,000, the lowest of all main card fighters. 

Co-main event participant Matt Brown brought home $150,000, while Marlon Moraes earned $140,000. 

Other top earners were the night’s headliners, Poirier and Pettis, who received $130,000 and $135,000, respectively. 

The figures released do not include any money from outside sponsors, Reebok outfitting numbers or outside sponsorships for the athletes. UFC Norfolk purses also exclude any locker room bonuses which include the $50,000 bonuses earned by Poirier, Pettis, Brown, and Raphael Assuncao.
