The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Friday’s “World Series of Fighting: Fitch vs. Burkman” event.
As expected, featured fighters Jon Fitch (pictured) and Josh Burkman were the night’s highest earners. Burkman scored $32,000 for 41 seconds of work in his submission victory over Fitch. Half of his paycheck came via win bonus.
Fitch, on the other hand, made $30,000 in defeat.
FYI – Fitch earned $66,000 in a loss to Demian Maia in his UFC finale.
The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas hosted the festivities.
