Shogun Rua got himself back into the win column last night, and in the process left Australia with the biggest payday at UFC Fight Night: Hunt vs Bigfoot.

Before we go any further, we should note that international events generally don’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 20 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event).
