UFC on FX: Belfort vs Rockhold Fighter Salaries & Attendance


UFC on FX: Belfort vs Rockhold Fighter Salaries & Attendance

Maybe he really is a ‘Phenom’ after all.  Last night marked another knockout victory for the 36-year-old Vitor Belfort, and with it another top payday.

Before we go any further, we should note that most international UFC events don’t have their fighter pay info released, 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 26 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 – for Strikeforce fighters that made their debut, we used their most recent Strikeforce pay level as their estimate).  These numbers obviously also don’t include any PPV revenue, undisclosed bonuses and/or sponsorship money any of these fighters may have made.
