UFC 215 Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

 

Gilbert Melendez might have lost his fourth straight fight inside the octagon, but he was still the top earner at UFC 215.

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. But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event.
