UFC Fight Night: Barnett vs Nelson Fighter Salaries, Reebok $$, Attendance & Gate

 

The Warmaster showed no ring rust in his return to the octagon at UFC Fight Night: Barnett vs Nelson, and left the Saitama Super Arena as the event’s top earner.

Before we go any further, we should note that most international events 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 (and from future fights – we go back and update these numbers as more info becomes available).  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 20 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).
