UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs Lobov Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

 

Cub Swanson was the top earner last night as the headliner at UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs Lobov.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Tennessee athletic commission doesn’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official (except for Al Iaquinta, who announced his amount earned publicly).  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 26 fighters that traded blows at the event, plus Neil Seery who got paid out his show money despite his fight being cancelled. But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event.
