However, while both fighters picked up wins in their latest UFC bouts, both also entered those contests with less than stellar bank accounts.
Croom would go on Twitter first to say that he had a total of $64 in his bank account before UFC Vegas 10:
On Wednesday I had $64 in my bank account, and was trying to figure out how to make it $65......helluva weekend!!!— Kevin Croom (@kevincroom_ufc) September 13, 2020
A victorious Croom would get lucky though, because outside of taking home a paycheck for winning the bout, he would also pick up an additional $50,000 for a Performance Of The Night bonus.
UFC President Dana White would also mention Croom on Twitter, talking about the risk he took for fighting on short notice:
So fucking badass!— danawhite (@danawhite) September 14, 2020

Clark, before UFC Vegas 11, had a meager $17.70 in her bank account, which she showed on Twitter; however, unlike Croom, no win bonus was offered to Clark, who left UFC Vegas 11 with just her normal paycheck.
“A bonus would have been nice Uncle Dana. I’ll do better next time #UFCVEGAS11”
