TUF 13 Finale Fighter Salaries

MoneyThe NSAC has released the fighter payouts for the TUF 13 Finale. 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.

Not only did Clay Guida knock Anthony Pettis off his top contender perch, he also took home the largest paycheck last Saturday night with a  $74,000 payday. The only other fighters on the card to break the $50,000 mark were Tony Ferguson, Reuban Duran, Kyle Kingsbury and Fabio Maldonado with their $40,000 bonuses. Also worth noting that the TUF 13 fighters made better money than several of the fighters on the card including Danny Downes, Ken Stone and Francisco Rivera.
