MMAWeekly.com reached out to the Arizona Boxing and MMA Commission for the salaries, but did not receive a response before this report. MMAFighting.com first reported news of the salaries.

In the main event, Nate Diaz collected just $16,000 in his loss to Rafael dos Anjos. Diaz was originally scheduled to earn $20,000, but missing weight cost him 20-percent of his purse, forfeiting it to his opponent, who banked a total of $86,000. Dos Anjos’ purse included $41,000 to show, $41,000 to win and $4,000 forfeited by Diaz.

Other leading earners included Alistair Overeem with $150,000 and Matt Mitrione with $66,000.

    If Diaz hadn’t missed weight he would have collected $20k for an embarrassingly bad performance. Sounds more than fair to me.

  • TheCerealKiller

    Nate was at 50K a fight, what the hell kind of high negotiating did he do this time? Just cut him, he’s not ever ranked anymore. Bellator can showcase him against nobodies, it’s the only wins he’ll get anymore.

      but its fun watching him get his ass kicked

      What kind of a fight fan are you ? Always running your mouth bashing other fighters while you sit safe behind your keyboard. You are a real hero.

      • TheCerealKiller

        Well, I’m not a fan of two guys that do nothing but complain and don’t backup all the talk. Just like Fitch when he got cut, he’s on his way down, not up.

    And where are people that said its ridiculous that Myles Jury made 16k for being in Co-ME? Now people are like “Nope, thats a lot of money for what he did” – and yeah, Jury sucked too against Cerrone. Diaz could make 36k. Jury could make 32k. All they had to do was simply fight and win. So now, in this case, its their fault that they didn’t make more.
