Josh Burkman vs Jon Fitch WSOF3The World Series of Fighting 3: Fitch vs. Burkman fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Josh Burkman established himself as the promotion’s top welterweight by upsetting the incoming Jon Fitch in the night’s main event, while Steve Carl put his name in the welterweight mix with a win over Tyson Steele.

WSOF 3 took place Friday, June 14, at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

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.
