We continue our examination of fighter pay in each weight class with a look at the ladies.  With the UFC just introducing a women’s division this year, the purse levels for the fighters are still rather low while the division continues to mature. So while our top 10 earning women’s fighter list makes it look like there’s no money in women’s MMA, it’s got nowhere to go but up.

(Unfortunately the all-women’s MMA organization, Invicta FC, has yet to have any of their payouts made public, so we don’t know how much their fighters are earning)

(fighters with a * beside their name have either estimated or non-current info)

Figures represent a fighter’s payout per fight
