Miller (32-14 MMA, 21-13 UFC) pocketed $208,0000 on Saturday after submitting lightweight fighter Roosevelt Roberts in the first round of their main card bout.

Miller, 36, was the only fighter to eclipse the $200,000 benchmark, but several other fighters similarly saw six-figure purses.

Headline victor Curtis Blaydes earned $180,000 for his unanimous decision victory over Alexander Volkov. Co-headliner participant Josh Emmett took home $152,000 for a back-and-forth brawl win over Shane Burgos. A unanimous decision victory over Lyman Good earned Belal Muhammad $100,000. Former UFC women’s bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington topped women's earnings with $126,000 for her unanimous decision win against Marion Reneau.

The figures don't account for deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. These payments also don't include earnings from sponsors, including the official UFC on ESPN 11 Promotional Guidelines Compliance pay. They also do not include any other “locker room” or special discretionary bonuses the UFC sometimes pays. They also do not include pay-per-view cuts that some top-level fighters receive.

UFC officials also rewarded a “Fight of the Night” bonus to Emmett and Burgos – and two $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonuses to Jaynes and Miller.
