UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs dos Santos Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

By

Junior dos Santos won a firefight in last night’s main event at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs dos Santos, and left Wichita the top earner.

 

Before we go any further, we should note that the Kansas state  athletic  commissions 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.

 

Attendance:   7,265
Gate:   $636,417.26
