The above 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. They were obtained by MMAJunkie from the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission.
The figures do not represent a full accounting of each fighter's income.
Fighters bear significant costs including training expenses, a percentage to management, a percentage to the trainer, plus insurance, licenses, and taxes.
On the income side, sponsorship money can be a substantial portion of income, although they have dropped lately. As well there are explicit $50,000 'of the Night' performance bonuses, and less formal 'locker room bonuses.'
Lastly, many fighters earn income from teaching, from appearances, and in some cases from regular employment in the non fighting space.
