UFC 228 Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

Champ T-Wood but on a dominant performance last night in the Lone Star state, and was the top earner at UFC 228.

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