UFC 266 saw some very exciting fights including the five round Featherweight title main event match between Alexander Volkanowski and Brian Ortega.
The main event was awarded the Fight of the Night award with each fighter bagging an extra $50000.

Brian Ortega will also get $300000 in base salary and $32000 in sponsorship.
