WSoF 1 Arlovski vs Cole PosterThe World Series of Fight 1: Arlovski vs. Cole fighter salaries were released by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

World Series of Fighting made its promotional debut on Saturday, Nov. 3, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

Andrei Arlovski capped off the fight card with a first-round knockout of Devin Cole, while Anthony “Rumble” Johnson continued to impress at 205 pounds with a brutal one-punch knockout of D.J. Linderman.

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.
