The WSDL has released the fighter payouts for UFC Fight Night 24. 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.
Prelim fighter Johny Hendricks surprisingly pulled in the biggest payday at UFC Fight Night 24 with a $99,000 payday with his win and KO bonuses factored in. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was right behind him with his $90,000 base salary. Chan Sung Jung, Michael McDonald and Edwin Figueroa all boosted their $10,000 paydays to $65,000 with their submission and fight of the night bonuses.
