UFC on FOX 7 'of the Night' Performance Bonuses

Fight of the Night

Matt Brown beat Jordan Mein by RSC at 1:00 of Round 2.

The figures above do not represent an accurate assessment of each fighter's income.

Fighters bear significant costs including training expenses, a percentage to management, a percentage to the trainer, insurance, licenses, and taxes.

On the income side, sponsorship money can be substantial, although they have dropped markedly over the past couple of years. Further, the UFC often gives out undisclosed "locker room" bonuses for exceptional performance. In addition there are the publicly announced 'of the Night' bonuses noted immediately above.

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

Watch the 'of the Night' fight highlight videos below!

TITAN Combat/TITAN Grappling Open, Promoter

It's not a typo/mistake. That's the official disclosed payday.

Sounds like they restructured his deal, and there may have been some money upfront that isn't reflected here.
