Bellator 214 Bellator MMA

Bellator 214: “Fedor vs. Bader” takes place this weekend (Sat., Jan. 26, 2019) at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., with Ryan Bader and Fedor Emelianenko squaring off in the Paramount Network broadcast main event of the evening.

No matter who wins the Grand Prix heavyweight finale tomorrow night, the loser can be consoled by the size of the check he cashed. For their efforts both Emelianenko and Bader will receive six figure salaries according to MMA Fighting, with Fedor getting $300,000 guaranteed (no win bonus) and Bader getting half as much at $150,000 (also no win bonus).

They are not the only fighters on the main card who will pocket large checks for one night’s work. Indeed, co-main event attraction Aaron Pico will bank a respectable $45,000 with an optional $45,000 win bonus, while featherweight opponent Henry Corrales will earn $35,000 with a potential $35,000 win bonus. The co-main event winner may very well land a future title shot against current champion Patricio Freire.

Not bad pay for one night’s work if you can get it.
