UFC on Fuel TV: Silva vs Stann Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate


The old dog still has some bite left in him – Wanderlei Silva scored an impressive KO victory over Brian Stann, plus walked out of the Saitama Super Arena with the biggest paycheck (along with Hector Lombard) at UFC on Fuel TV: Silva vs Stann.  Silva and Lombard are also among the top 10 earners for 2013 so far.

Before we go any further, we should note that Japan 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, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event).  These numbers obviously also don’t include any PPV revenue, undisclosed bonuses and/or sponsorship money any of these fighters may have made.
