UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs Johnson Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

UFC vet Evan Dunham had a real slobberknocker with newcomer Rick Glenn at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs Johnson, and was the event’s top earner.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Texas 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 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.
