Woodley earned a majority decision after five close rounds of combat that some felt could have gone in favor of Thompson. Both men earned a significant payday but were not the earners of the highest guaranteed salaries for their fight. Woodley earned a $400,000 guaranteed fight purse with a $100,000 win bonus. Thompson earned $380,000 for his title fight competition. This does not include any pay-per-view compensation that is typical of a UFC championship fight.
