UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov reportedly received his highest career pay of £ 4.6million (around RM24.9 million) after defeating Justin Gaethje at UFC 254, recently.

During the match, Khabib needed just two rounds to knock down his opponent via technical submission with a triangle choke in a fight on Fight Island before announcing his sudden retirement.

Khabib retired with a perfect 29-0 thus maintaining his unbeaten record citing his father’s death and a promise made to his mother as reasons for the retirement.

Apart from earning RM24.9 million from the fight, Khabib also received an additional bonus of victory worth almost £ 70,000 (RM379,549) for the performance of the night.

That amount is clearly more than the £ 1.5million (RM8.13 million) he received while beating Conor McGregor at UFC 229, with his opponent from Ireland earning £ 2.3million (RM12.4 million).

Khabib’s last opponent, Gaethje, is reported to have brought home £ 300,000 (RM1.6 million) from the fight in Abu Dhabi.
