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

By

Jimi Manuwa got headkicked into never-never land today in Stockholm, but at least he was fairly well paid for it.

 

Before we go any further, we should note that 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 24 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
