Bellator 165 fighter payouts for those athletes competing at the "Chandler vs. Henderson" mixed martial arts (MMA) event last weekend (Sat., Nov. 19, 2016) from inside SAP Center in San Jose, were released earlier today by California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).

The total disclosed payroll was $361,500.

The top earners of the night were defending champion Michael Chandler and No. 1 contender Benson Henderson, who each pocketed $50,000 for their work over five grueling rounds in the main event (watch it).
