Ciryl Gane, the newly crowned UFC interim heavyweight champion, has revealed how much he took home for his win over Derrick Lewis.

Gane defeated Lewis via third-round TKO in Houston at UFC 265 earlier this month, setting up the biggest fight of his career against Francis Ngannou to unify the heavyweight title in the near future.

But how much did he take home for his efforts against Lewis?

In an interview with French newspaper L’Equipe, Gane (10-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) made his purse information public. Before taxes and his cut to his coaches, Gane said his purse was $350,000. After taxes, his team’s cut, and the currency conversion, he claims his take-home was around €160,000 (approximately $188,000).

Gane also took home a Performance of the Night bonus, good for an additional $50,000 payout. Also, include $32,000 as a part of the UFC Promotional Guidelines Compliance payout.

These figures do not include pay-per-view points if applicable, or any other discretionary bonuses that the promotion may choose to pay its fighters.
