Bellator decided to go head-to-head with the UFC on Saturday, trotting out the first fight of their Heavyweight Grand Prix along with a much-anticipated welterweight title fight. The card turned out okay, and the four guys on top all made over 100k.
Here’s a look at the full reported salary rundown, courtesy of the California State Athletic Commission (via MMA Fighting). Interestingly, a lot of the top guys have flat-rate salaries with no win bonuses.
Chael Sonnen ($300,000 + no win bonus = $300,000) defeated Quinton Jackson ($300,000)
Guilherme Bomba ($40,000 + no win bonus = $40,000) defeated Ivan Castillo ($2,500)
