Smooth Henderson got his first UFC finish last night at UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs Khabilov, and left the Octagon with the biggest paycheck.

Before we go any further, we should note that the New Mexico 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).

UPDATE: Apparently New Mexico does release fighter purse info (they just chose to ignore my requests).  Here is the official fighter purse info from the event, first reported by Sherdog.
