UFC Fight Night: Cowboy vs Oliveira Fighter Salaries, Reebok $$, Attendance & Gate

Cowboy Cerrone rode off into the sunset with the biggest payday at Sunday’s UFC Fight Night: Cowboy vs Oliveira event in Pittsburgh.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Pennsylvania fight 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 (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 26 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info).
