UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Gaethje Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

By

 

Justin Gaethje lived up to his billing last night in Philly, and was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Gaethje.

 

Before we go any further, we should note that the Pennsylvania 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.
