UFC Fight Night: Volkan vs Smith Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

Gian Villante got into a firefight with Ed Herman last night in Moncton, and came away with the W and the honor of being the event’s top earner.

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.  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.
