UFC Fight Night: Smith vs Spann Estimated Purses & Incentive Pay

Anthony Smith should not be underestimated. He dominated the main event tonight in Las Vegas, and was the top earner at UFC Vegas 37.

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 28 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
