UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs Poirier Fighter Salaries

chan sung jung

Chan Sung Jung was the winning fighter in a Fight of the Year worthy scrap at Tuesday’s UFC on Fuel TV: Korean Zombie vs Poirier, so it is fitting that Mr. Zombie also walked away with the biggest paycheck.  And congratulations to birthday boy Tom Lawlor, who was so broke heading into Tuesday that he was living off the donations of family and friends and hasn’t deposited a check into his bank account in a year-and-a-half.  It’s a glamorous life, that of a fighter.
