MMAmania.com has received the fighter payouts for WEC 35 from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for the event held on August 3 from the "The Joint" at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
WEC Welterweight Champion Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit was the bread winner on the night, taking home $44,000 for his main event title defense over Hiromitsu Miura. For Miura, despite this being the main event -- and one of the best fights of the year -- he only made $5,000 base pay.
Steve Cantwell netted $1,000 less than Brian Stann, but the new light heavyweight champ will get to take a nice shiny new belt home with him, too.
Lightweight title holder Jamie Varner took home $30,000 for his title defense over Marcus Hicks. And welterweight Brock Larson also pocketed $30,000 in just 37seconds of work.
