The fighter salary information for the World Extreme Cagefighting event<br /> on March 26 was released recently by the Nevada State A


The California State Athletic Commission recently
released the fighter salary information for the World Extreme Cagefighting
event (WEC 34) held on June 1.

 

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 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
a promoter also pays its fighters 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.
