It’s good to be The Reem.  He got back on the winning track at UFC on Fox: dos Santos vs Miocic, and walked away with one of the biggest paychecks.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Arizona 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, and Ed Herman who got paid his show money despite his fight being cancelled (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event).
