The UFC Athlete Outfitting (aka Reebok) pay program has released the financial figures for UFC London, and with a lot of less experienced fighters on the roster the numbers are pretty low.
Unsurprisingly, Fabricio Werdum stands head and shoulders above the rest of the roster with $15,000 for his 20th fight with the promotion. Fun fact: fights 21 and above get him in the highest $20,000 per fight payment tier. Everyone else on the card? Sitting in the $3500 to $5000 range for their 1 to 10 fights in the UFC.
The total amount paid out for UFC Fight Night: Werdum vs. Volkov sits at $96,500 which is the lowest payout of the year so far. Here’s how that breaks down specifically:
