World Series of Fighting 23 featured a title fight and a tournament final to crowd a new champion, and the men that came out on top in those respective fights managed to make some bank. Both Justin Gaethje and David Branch cracked six figures, with each making $100,000 for their victories.Gaethje defeated Luis Palomino, who made 20k, while Branch beat Teddy Holder, who made 12k.
