UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs Thatch Fighter Purses, Attendance & Gate

By

 

Benson Henderson’s welterweight debut was a smashing success, as he got an impressive victory over Brandan Thatch and left as the evening’s top earner.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Colorado Athletic Commission doesn’t officially 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 future fights – we’ll go back and update this data if we get more info on a fighter’s pay pattern from future fights).  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters on the card (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event).

 

Attendance: 5,807
Gate: $382,875
