Fighting in his native Maine for the first time, Tim Boetsch didn’t disappoint his “hometown” crowd.  He TKO’d Brad Tavares and got the biggest paycheck of the evening.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Combat Sports Authority of Maine 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 20 fighters scheduled for the card (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event).
