On Saturday, July 9, at the T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas, UFC 200 will pit light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier versus Jon Jones on the main card, with women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate defending her title against Amanda Nunes.
Brock Lesnar returns to the UFC fight card against Mark Hunt. Although Irishman Conor McGregor was originally slated to fight Nick Diaz at UFC 200, his match was moved to UFC 202.
Payouts have not yet been disclosed for UFC 200, but UFC 199 had a disclosed payroll of $2.69 million, $600,000 of which went to Dan Henderson, plus a $200,000 win bonus, reported MMA Fighting. Here is a look at the fighters, their careers and net worths.
Jon Jones Net Worth: $10 Million
Jon “Bones” Jones, who has a net worth of $10 million, stormed into the UFC and steamrolled through the division, becoming the youngest-ever UFC world champion at just 23 years old. The UFC fighter has suffered just one loss to date, which is widely attributed to a bad referee call.
Jon Jones piled up convincing wins against celebrated UFC fighters, including Vitor Belfort, Rashad Evans, “Shogun” Rua and Lyoto Machida. He passed legendary knockout artist Chuck Liddell for most finishes by knockout or submission in light heavyweight history.
Daniel Cormier Net Worth: Unknown
Although reliable net worth information on Daniel Cormier is not available, the fighter is a two-time Olympic wrestler and six-time U.S. Open national champion. The UFC light heavyweight champion has defeated UFC giants like Dan Henderson and Frank Mir.

Wildly popular among UFC fans, Miesha “Cupcake” Tate is a brand of her own. The UFC fighter has her roots as the former bantamweight champion in Strikeforce and Freestyle Cage Fighting.
Although Miesha Tate has consistently lost to Ronda Rhousey in Strikeforce and UFC, rival Holly Holm beat Ronda Rousey in an upset match for the title of women’s bantamweight champion. Tate later took that title from Holm at UFC 196 in March (see below).
Miesha Tate’s net worth is $3 million. She enters UFC 200 on a five-fight winning streak.
