Not only did Patricky “Pitbull” Freire get the better of former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson at Bellator 183, he also took the top spot on the list of fighter salaries.

Freire and Henderson went toe-to-toe for three rounds. It was Freire, however, that earned a split-decision nod from the judges. 

The victory was accompanied by a $45,000 win bonus, which pushed Freire’s disclosed salary to $110,000 for the fight.  Henderson fell well behind, earning $50,000 in defeat.

Roy Nelson, a former UFC heavyweight, earned $60,000 for his win over Javy Ayala in his promotional debut.
