UFC 186 Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate



The Count gets to count a lot of money after leaving last night’s UFC 186 event in Montreal as the top earner.

Before we go any further, we should note that most international fighter commissions don’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 24 fighters that traded blows at the event, plus Steve Bosse who got paid despite not fighting (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event – we’re basing Rampage Jackson’s purse on the rate he was being paid during his last UFC run; Michael Bisping’s is based on his last reported purse way back in 2011).
