The UFC on Fuel TV 4 fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Thursday by the California State Athletic Commission.
Chris Weidman established himself as a legitimate middleweight contender with his dominating victory over Mark Munoz in the main event.
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.
