UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Lee Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

Frankie Edgar had a hero’s welcome last night on his home turf of New Jersey, and was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Lee.

Before we go any further, we should note that the  New Jersey State Athletic Commission doesn’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 (but Kevin Lee and Cub Swanson have recently inked new contracts, so their estimates may be way off – will update in the future as more info comes in).  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
