UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Chikadze Estimated Purses & Incentive Pay

By

Gerald Meerschaert pulled off a miraculous comeback and upset victory at UFC Vegas 35, and was the event’s top earner.

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.
