Lucas Noonan/World Series of Fighting
It may have been the promotion's mixed martial arts (MMA) debut but World Series of Fighting paid its fighters fairly well for the WSOF 1: "Arlovski vs. Cole" event last night (Nov. 3, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has already made available the list of fighter payouts and salaries for those who competed at the WSOF 1: "Arlovski vs. Cole" event last night (Sat., Nov. 3, 2012) at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Andrei Arlovski made a killing, all things considered, when he knocked out Devin Cole in the night's main event. Just for showing up, he got $30,000 but in victory he earned another $30,000 on top of that.
Not a bad payday for a smaller show broadcast on NBC Sports Network.
But that's not all.
Here are the complete WSOF 1 payouts and salaries (HT: Bloody Elbow):
Andrei Arlovski: $30,000 base + $30,000 win vs. Devin Cole: $10,000
Anthony Johnson: $30,000 + $25,000 win vs. D.J. Linderman: $10,000
Keep in mind the salaries listed above do not include fight bonuses, sponsorships, percentages and other unofficial payments such as PPV bonuses, among others. It also does not include deductions for expenses such as insurance, taxes, etc.
