Last night was a good one for Carlos Condit.  He snapped his losing streak with a nice win over Martin Kampmann, and walked out of UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs Kampmann 2 with the biggest paycheck.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Indiana Athletic Commission doesn’t release fighter purse 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 – for Strikeforce fighters that made their debut, we used their most recent Strikeforce pay level as their estimate).  These numbers obviously also don’t include any PPV revenue, undisclosed bonuses and/or sponsorship money any of these fighters may have made.
