Just as he does with everyone he steps into the cage with, Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson dwarfs the competition in terms of pay also, topping our UFC Fight Night: Johnson vs Reis payouts.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Missouri 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 (however, Jacare Souza’s new contract kicks in at this event, but since we don’t know the details of it yet we are still basing his pay on his old rate).  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.
