The above figures are the fighter payout information that promoters are required by California regulations to submit to the state athletic commission; they 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, most fighters earned apparel income. Out-of-event sponsorship money too can be a significant, although it is much, much smaller for many fighters than it was in the past. And lastly, many fighters earn income from teaching, from appearances, and in many cases from regular employment in the non-fighting space.
