UFC Fight Night: Alvarez vs Poirier 2 Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

By

Jose Aldo got back in the winner’s circle last night in Calgary, and was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Alvarez vs Poirier 2.

Before we go any further, we should note that most  international   athletic  commissions  don’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following  salary data for the event is official (especially for Jose Aldo & Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who haven’t fought in a non-title fight for quite a while).  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 26 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
