UFC on Fox: Johnson vs Bader Fighter Salaries, Reebok $$, Attendance & Gate

 

Rumble Johnson made quick work of Ryan Bader last night in New Jersey, then walked away with a big cheque as the top earner at UFC on Fox: Johnson vs Bader.

Before we go any further, we should note that the New Jersey fight 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 (and from future fights – we go back and update these numbers as more info becomes available).  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 26 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info).
