UFC 262 Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay, Attendance & Gate

AND NEEEEWWWWW!! Charles Oliveira completed his unexpected and improbable run to the top of the UFC mountain last night in Houston, winning the UFC Lightweight Championship and earning the biggest paycheck at UFC 262.

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

 

Attendance:   16,0005
Gate:   $4,110,000
