UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs Mousasi Fighter Purses, Attendance & Gate


Gegard Mousasi got back in the win column in Berlin at UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs Mousasi, and also ended up the top earning fighter for the event.

Before we go any further, we should note that international events generally 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 20 fighters scheduled for the card (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event, except for C.B. Dolloway, who revealed his purse info before the event to MMAjunkie)
