Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza made a triumphant return to the octagon in Charlotte last night, and was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs Brunson 2.

Before we go any further, we should note that the North Carolina 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 24fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
