The California State Athletic Commission has released the disclosed salaries for all the contestants who competed in Wednesday’s “UFC Fight Night: Mir vs. Duffee” event.
Mir was by far and away the night’s biggest winner. The former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir (pictured) made a flat $200,000 salary for his knockout win over Todd Duffee in the show’s featured contest.
Duffee made a mere $12,000.
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 sponsorship money paid by Reebok or any bonuses from the UFC. These royalties can Fight Night bonuses, top secret discretionary bonuses, etc., which can oftentimes represent a substantial portion of a fighter’s total income.
UFC Fight Night 72 took place inside Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California.
