* — Yes, Gabin earned just $1. We confirmed the amount with the FBAC, though MMAjunkie.com has been unable to confirm why the amount was so low.

Now, the usual disclaimer: the figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter’s income. In other words, these are simply base salaries reported to the FSBC and do not represent the total amounts earned by each fighter.
