The above figures are the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners' bonuses.

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 the purse, although it is smaller for the mid tier fighters than it was in the past. As well there are explicit 'of the Night' performance bonuses noted above, and less formal 'locker room' bonuses.

Main event PPV fighters can receive a percentage of the PPV gross, variously determined.

Lastly, many fighters earn income from teaching, from appearances, and in many cases from regular employment in the non-fighting space.

Figures courtesy of MMAFighting.

*Also received $50,000 'of the Night' performance bonuses.

How much of that 8k is left once you have paid for extra hotel rooms and flights for the other two corner guys the UFC does not cover?Lower tier guys essentially fight for free right?

Why do people assume that Dana's $3+ billion valuation is accurate? Looking at the performance of recent PPV's among other things, I'd say Dana white is completely full of shit and just spouting numbers because as is custom with Zuffa they can't be substantiated.

The prelims aren't the D-league. Making it to the NBA is MMA's equivalent of making it to the UFC. Fighting on the prelims would be like being the #7-11 guy on an NBA roster. They will likely not see much if any playing time and the guys on the prelims will likely not get much either. The NBA benchwarmers might get in the game in certain circumstances and the UFC prelim fighters may make it to the main card in certain circumstances.
