UFC 231 Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

The 10th Island was rocking last night for Max Holloway, and he didn’t disappoint, as he successfully defended his strap and was the top earner at UFC 231.

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 (Holloway & Ortega is based on their reported purses they would have earned at UFC 226).  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.
