The NSAC has released the fighter payouts for WEC 50. Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional 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.
Scott Jorgensen took home the biggest paycheck at WEC 50, earning a grand total of $35,000 after his win and FOTN bonuses. Lightweight contender Anthony Pettis and bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz rounded out the top three with $22,000 a piece.
