UFC on Fox: Gustafsson vs Johnson Fighter Purses, Attendance & Gate

Gustafsson vs Johnson Fighter Purses,
Gegard Mousasi made quick work of MMA legend Dan Henderson last night in Sweden, and left UFC on Fox: Gustafsson vs Johnson as the event’s top earner.

Before we go any further, we should note that most fights staged outside of the U.S. don’t have officially released 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).

 

Attendance: 30,000
Gate: $3,100,000
