Top Ten Earning Featherweights

 

 

We continue our examination of fighter pay in each weight class with a look at one of the UFC’s newest weight classes, the flyweights..  With the UFC just introducing the 125-pound division last year, the purse levels for the fighters are still rather low while the division continues to mature.

(fighters with a * beside their name have either estimated or non-current info)

Figures represent a fighter’s payout per fight
