UFC 240 Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

By

Max Holloway bounced back from a rare loss and got back on the winning track last night in Edmonton, and fittingly was the top earner at UFC 240.

 

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 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (not real confident about Cyborg & Spencer’s pay – will update when more info becomes available).  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
