The Florida State Boxing Commission has released the official salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Saturday’s “UFC on FOX 19: Teixeira vs. Evans” event.
Despite getting put to sleep in merely 108 seconds by the vicious hands of Glover Teixeira, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans (pictured) was the night’s highest earner with $150,000.
Teixeira scored $120,000, with half of his paycheck coming via win bonus.
Starwweight up-and-comer Rose Namajunas was the third-highest paid with $86,000 for beating Tecia Torres in the co-main attraction.
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 include Fight Night bonuses, top secret discretionary bonuses, etc., which can oftentimes represent a substantial portion of a fighter’s total income.
Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida hosted Saturday’s event.
