The “hometown boy” was the big star and top earner at UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs Teixeira.

 

Before we go any further, we should note that most international athletic commissions don’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official.  However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights (Alexander Gustafsson hasn’t fought in a region that releases purse info since 2012, so his estimate is probably the least accurate of the bunch; Misha Cirkunov signed a new contract before this event, so can’t get a precise estimate for him either at this point).  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 24 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
