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.
