MMA: Bellator 183-Pico vs Linn Dave Mandel-USA TODAY Sports

The Bellator 183 salaries have been released, courtesy of the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), and the top earner on the paysheet is lightweight contender Patricky Pitbull. His split decision over Ben Henderson (whose base pay was $50,000) netted him a total of $110,000, with $45,000 coming via win bonus.

You’re probably curious as to what Aaron Pico made for his second pro MMA fight, and the heavily hyped prospect is getting considerable coin. Pico’s devastating left hook KO of Justin Linn doubled his pay from $25,000 to $50,000.

As a friendly reminder, these figures do not necessarily represent a fighter's total earnings. These are only the disclosed purses and do not include things such as sponsorship money or discretionary bonuses.
