UFC 158 Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate

(Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports)

Last night couldn’t have gone much better for Georges St-Pierre – he vanquished his rival, he soaked up the love of his hometown crowd, and he walked away with the biggest paycheck.

Before we go any further, we should note that most international UFC events don’t have their fighter pay info released, 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).  These numbers obviously also don’t include any PPV revenue, undisclosed bonuses and/or sponsorship money any of these fighters may have made.
