Both fighters paid negotiated salaries. Now, the usual disclaimer: the figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other special bonuses the organization may have paid its fighters. In other words, these are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
