    Someone asked about this a few days ago and MMA weekly just reported it.

    Although MMA 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 Zuffa and the WEC also pay its fighters, but do not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, PPV bonuses for the top PPV main event fighters, which would not apply since this event was not on PPV), are not included in the figures below.

    In the listings below, "Title Match & Main Event Fighters" are defined as fighters who compete in the main event of a show and/or compete in a title fight on a show. "Preliminary Match Fights" are fights that are taped before a TV or PPV show goes on the air, and since this show hasn't aired on TV or PPV, all of the non-main event fights are defined as "Main Card Fights."

    Highlights from this event will air this summer on one of the WEC's hour-long highlight shows on the Versus Network, which is available in approximately 70 million U.S. households.


    Title Match & Main Event Fighters

    -Doug Marshall: $8,000 (defeated Justin McElfresh)

    -Justin McElfresh: $3,000 (lost to Doug Marshall)


    Main Card Fighters

    -Jason "Mayhem" Miller: $30,000 (defeated Hiromitsu Miura)

    -Manny Tapia: $8,000 (defeated Brandon Foxworth)

    -Ariel Gandulla: $6,000 (defeated Gary Padilla)

    -Marcus Hicks: $6,000 (defeated Sergio Gomez)

    -Ed Ratcliff: $6,000 (defeated Johnny Sampaio)

    -Eric Schambari: $6,000 (defeated Art Santore)

    -Art Santore: $6,000 (lost to Eric Schambari)

    -Charlie Kohler: $5,000 (lost to Sherron Leggett)

    -Tom Speer: $4,000 (defeated Sidney Silva)

    -Sidney Silva: $4,000 (lost to Tom Speer)

    -Brandon Foxworth: $4,000 (lost to Manny Tapia)

    Thanks for that, it was I who asked for them. Consider this, its not aired on TV so only profit is from ticket sales+sponsors, and the no-names get paid the same as UFC PPV's...
