UFC 217 Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

 

Before we go any further, we should note that the New York 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.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (we’re basing GSP’s purse on what Brock Lesnar earned for his comeback fight at UFC 200). But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event.
