UFC on FX 3 Fighter Salaries: Mike Pyle Takes Home the Bacon


Mike Pyle at UFC 128The UFC on FX 3 fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson won a unanimous decision victory over Ian McCall in their main event rematch. Johnson now moves on to face Joseph Benavidez for the first ever UFC flyweight championship at an undetermined future event.

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.
