UFC Fight Night: Jung vs Ige Fighter Salaries & Incentive Pay

By

UFC Vegas 29 Preview & Bets (Juicy Jeff) | MMA Gambling Podcast (Ep.47)

The old dog still has some bite left in him, as Matt Brown got a KO win last night in Las Vegas and was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Jung vs Ige.

 

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