UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs Faber Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate


Frankie Edgar was the winner of today’s “superfight” at UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs Faber, and in return got paid a “super” salary.

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 24 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).
