The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the disclosed salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Saturday’s World Series of Fighting 10.

Freshly minted middleweight champion David Branch was the night’s highest earner. Branch made $36,000, with half of his paycheck coming via win bonus, for submitting Jesse Taylor in the main event.

Strawweight champ Jessica Aguilar (pictured) made $35,000 in her decision win over Emi Fujino.

Please keep in mind, the numbers that get reported to the athletic commissions are only of what’s required. These figures do not include deductions for items such as licenses and taxes.

Additionally, they do not contain money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes represent a substantial portion of a fighter’s total income.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada hosted Saturday’s festivities.
