UFC Fight Night: Jedrzejczyk vs Penne Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate


The UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna “Champion” Jedrzejczyk put a righteous beating on Jessica Penne last night in Berlin, and left UFC Fight Night: Jedrzejczyk vs Penne the event’s top earner.

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 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (Jedrzejczyk’s is based on what the UFC paid the fighters in the original Women’s Strawweight Championship fight when the weight division was created).  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event.


Attendance: 8,155
