MoneyThe NSAC has released the fighter payouts for Ultimate Fight Night 14 “Silva vs Irvin.” 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.

Not surprisingly, the big money winners for the night were Anderson Silva and Brandon Vera. Each fighter earned $200,000.
