Bellator 106 payouts and salaries: Mike Chandler and Eddie Alvarez earn big in main event

Bellator 106 salaries are out! Here's a complete list of tonight's earnings for all the fighters competing on the "Chandler vs. Alvarez" SPIKE TV event in Long Beach, California.

Bellator 106 salaries are out early for tonight's (Nov. 2, 2013) event that's going down right now live from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California. The biggest earners? Michael Chandler and Eddie Alvarez, who meet in the main event for the Bellator Lightweight title.

These numbers were released by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) and give a rare insight into Bellator's pay structure.

It's no surprise that Alvarez and Chandler are set to earn the most tonight, as they are two of the most recognizable faces on the Bellator roster.

What is a surprise is that "King" Mo Lawal is making a paltry 10/10 on the night. That's peanuts to what he was taking home when he fought in Strikeforce.

However, even more disappointing is learning that the loser of the "Fight Master" finals between Joe Riggs and Mike Bronzoulis takes home $5,000 while the winner snags a cool $100,000.

The full list of potential Bellator 106 salaries include:

Michael Chandler: $95,000 (win bonus of $95,000)
Eddie Alvarez: $80,000 (win bonus of $80,000)
