UFC Fight Night: Vieira vs Tate Fighter Salaries & Incentive Pay

It’s not often (or ever) that veteran Rani Yahya finds himself the top earner at a UFC event, but he was tonight at UFC Vegas 43.

Before we go any further, we should note that the Nevada State Athletic Commission doesn’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 24 fighters that traded blows at the event.  But please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info.
