UFC 169 Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate

UFC_169_2_poster

The Demolition Man did just that to Frank Mir last night at UFC 169, plus Alistair Overeem walked out of the cage with the biggest paycheck.

Before we go any further, we should note that the New Jersey Athletic Commission doesn’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official.  However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 24 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event  - we’ll update figures for all the fighters once we get more info).
