Moosin MMA salaries: Tim Sylvia the better fighter, Mariusz Pudzianowski the bigger earner


The official fighter purses for those who competed at Moosin: "Gods of Martial Arts" back on May 21 from the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., were released yesterday and come courtesy of The Boston Herald.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia earned $50,000 for winning his main event fight against Mariusz Pudzianowski, but "The Maine-iac" may be suffering from payroll envy after "The World's Strongest Negotiator" banked more than double that figure ($110,000) in defeat.

Coming in a distant third was Gracie Fusion's Rafael Natal, who collected $14,000 for turning out the lights on former UFC middleweight Travis Lutter ($4,000) in the first round of their 185-pound affair. The only other fighters to break the 10k mark were Mike Campbell ($12,000) and Travis Wiuff ($10,000).
