UFC 204 Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson had an epic battle last night in Manchester at UFC 204 and were the event’s top earners.

Before we go any further, we should note that most international fighter 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.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (plus Rob Font who got paid out despite his fight being cancelled). But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event.  Plus Michael Bisping might have gotten a nice pay bump since becoming champion).
