MMA Fighting reports the payouts from Bellator 172 this past Saturday night. The salaries were released by the California State Athletic Commission.

Veta Arteaga ($6,000 + $6,000 = $12,000) def. Brooke Mayo ($8,000)

Justin Tenedora ($1,000 + $1,000 = $2,000) def. Roque Reyes ($1,000)
Martin Sano ($2,000) vs. Diego Herzog ($2,500) ruled majority draw

Abraham Vaesau ($1,000 + $1,000 = $2,000) def. Dominic Sumner ($1,000)

Payout Perspective:

Freire, Kongo and Koscheck were the big money earners with each making at least $75,000. Freire earned $80,000 with his win bonus. Notably, no one else made over $20,000. One has to think that Fedor and Mitrione would have also made over $75,000 with Fedor likely making the most for the night. One has to think that Koscheck’s pay might not be commensurate with his skill at this stage in his career.
The fighters he's beaten aren't even household names in their own household.

"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of god."
