The Resurrection Fighting Alliance 4 fighter salaries were released by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

RFA 4, which took place on Friday, Nov. 2, marked the promotion’s first foray to Las Vegas at Texas Station and also its first broadcast on AXS TV.

Tyson Griffin, after more than a year out of the cage, returned to his winning ways and topped the RFA 4 payouts in the process.

Fredson Paixao failed to make weight for his fight with Lance Palmer. He was penalized 20-percent of his show money, or $400, which was paid directly to Palmer. The penalty is reflected in the figures below.

The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.

Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters’ salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.
