WEC 42 ‘Torres vs Bowles’ Fighter Payouts

MoneyThe NSAC has released the fighter payouts for WEC 42 “Torres vs Bowles.” Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional undisclosed 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.

As usual, none of the WEC fighters really got paid a whole hell of a lot, at least not in disclosed pay. No fighter cracked $30,000 even with the $10,000 bonuses. Miguel Torres made the most base pay, but new champ Brian Bowles manged to squeak just ahead of him with his “Knockout of the Night” bonus taking home a total of $28,000.
