UFC Fight Night: Blachowicz vs Santos Fighter Salaries, Incentive Pay

Post by Primetyme199 » Mon Feb 25, 2019 11:06 am

If that was indeed Stefan Struve’s last foray into the octagon, at least he went out on top – he was the top earner at UFC Fight Night: Blachowicz vs Santos.

Before we go any further, we should note that international athletic commissions don’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official. However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights. So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 26 fighters that traded blows at the event. But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.

The fighters he's beaten aren't even household names in their own household.
