UFC Fight Night: Font vs Aldo Fighter Salaries & Incentive Pay

The old dog still has plenty of bite in him – Jose Aldo looked fantastic in the main event at UFC on ESPN: Font vs Aldo, 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 22 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
