The Washington State Department of Licensing on Monday released the fighter salary information for UFC Fight Night 24: Nogueira vs. Davis.

Undefeated UFC light heavyweight standout Phil Davis cemented his position among the division’s elite by winning a unanimous decision against veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Anthony Johnson did the same in the welterweight class, dominating former UFC title challenger Dan Hardy.

UFC Fight Night 24 took place Saturday, March 26, at Key Arena in Seattle.

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.
