UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs Swanson Fighter Purses, Attendance & Gate

Frankie Edgar has called for a featherweight title shot after his destruction of Cub Swanson on Saturday night, and it makes sense – he’s already paid like a champ.  Edgar was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs Swanson.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Texas 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 (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 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).
