UFC on Fox: Holm vs Shevchenko Fighter Salaries, Reebok $, Attendance & Gate

 

Gilbert Melendez dropped his third straight fight inside the octagon last night at UFC on Fox: Holm vs Shevchenko, but still walked away with the biggest check.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Illinois 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.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 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: 10,287
Gate: $1,000,000
