UFC 257 Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay & Attendance

Conor McGregor got (T)KO’d for the first time ever yesterday at UFC 257, but was still the top earner at the event.

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.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.

 

Attendance: 2,000 (approx.)
