Andrei Arlovski made it four-straight losses last night in Denver, but he still walked away the top earner at UFC on Fox: Shevchenko vs Pena.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Colorado State 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 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.
