PFL 5 Salaries: Five Fighters, Including Larissa Pacheco and Ante Delija, Share Highest Payouts

The salaries for the PFL 5 event in Atlanta have been disclosed, with five fighters earning the highest payouts of $100,000 each.

On Sunday, the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission sent an email to MMA Hook containing the salary details.

At the forefront of the list is Ante Delija, the reigning PFL heavyweight champion from 2022, who received $100,000 for his victory over Maurice Greene in the main event. Unfortunately, Delija couldn’t progress to the playoffs due to missing the first fight of the season. Consequently, he will now have to watch from the sidelines as four other heavyweights vie for the $1 million grand prize.

In the co-main event, Larissa Pacheco also secured a $100,000 paycheck after delivering a fierce first-round finish against Amber Leibrock. Pacheco’s triumph granted her the top seed in the featherweight division, and she aims to claim her second $1 million prize, having previously won the 2022 lightweight crown in an upset victory against two-time Olympic gold medalist Kayla Harrison.

Denis Goltsov earned $100,000 for his rapid-fire win over UFC veteran Yorgan De Castro, securing his spot as the No. 1 seed in the 2023 PFL playoffs.

Aspen Ladd, a former UFC fighter, pocketed $100,000 for her submission victory over Karolina Sobek. However, despite going 1-1 in her debut season with the PFL, Ladd will not be competing in the playoffs as she failed to accumulate enough points to advance.

Similarly, former Bellator featherweight champion Julia Budd earned $100,000 for defeating Martina Jindrova. Nonetheless, Budd fell short of securing the necessary points to progress into the playoffs, mirroring Ladd’s fate.
