The NAC has released the fighter payouts for UFC Fight Night 15. Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional “locker room” bonuses or sponsorship money, which in many cases exceeds a fighter’s base pay. These numbers also do not account for taxes, insurance, and license fees.
Nate Diaz took home the largest paycheck of the night with his victory over Josh Neer. In addition to the $40k for winning the fight, Nate also pocketed an extra $30k for “Fight of the Night” honors.
