UFC 184 Fighter Salaries: Jake Ellenberger, Not Ronda Rousey, Tops Payroll

UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continues to stake her claim as one of the most dominant fighters on the planet, man or woman.

Ronda Rousey UFC 184 weigh-inRousey scored the fastest championship victory in UFC history on Saturday night, submitting Cat Zingano in the UFC 184 main event via her patented armlock.

Surprisingly, however, it wouldn’t be Rousey that topped the list of UFC 184 fighter salaries, as that honor went to Jake Ellenberger. Ellenberger earned $136,000 to Rousey’s $130,000 for his main card victory over Josh Koscheck.

The California State Athletic Commission on Saturday released the full UFC 184: Rousey vs. Zingano fighter salaries. The event took place on Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
