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. Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters’ salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses (including, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.) that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions are not included in the figures above.
