Posted on by MMAWeekly.com Staff

MMAWeekly has obtained the fighter salary information for UFC Fight Night 11, which took place on Sept. 20 at the Palms in Las Vegas.

The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that Zuffa, LLC (the UFC’s parent company) are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.

Although MMA 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 Zuffa and the UFC also pay its fighters, but do not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses for the top pay-per-view main event fighters, which would not apply since this event was not on pay-per-view), are not included in the figures below.

In the listings below, ” Main Event Fighters” are defined as fighters who compete in the main event of a show. “Main Card Fighters” are defined as fighters whose fights appear on the main card, but not in title fights or in the main event. “Preliminary Match Fighters” are defined as fighters whose matches take place before the live broadcast goes on the air, regardless of whether or not those matches end up airing on the TV broadcast.
