The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Monday released the fighter salary information for The Ultimate Fighter Season 13 Finale.

Tony Ferguson knocked out Ramsey Nijem to take home the honors as this season’s welterweight “Ultimate Fighter” winner, while Clay Guida put himself in the UFC lightweight title picture by defeating Anthony Pettis.

The TUF 13 Finale took place Saturday, June 4, at The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.

Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters’ salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.
