Former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold topped the announced fighter salaries from this past Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 35 card.
Rockhold, who bested Costa Philippou in the main event, earned $80,000. Philippou picked up $23,000 in the loss, according to the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission.
The numbers below do not include any type of bonus, sponsorship or locker room payments given or earned by the fighter.
Rockhold, who also picked up $50,000 for his “Knockout of the Night,” likely spent a portion of his paycheck after the win. He delivered a kick to the liver of Philippou that earned him his first UFC victory.
My liver took a beating last night too. Haha
