UFC 184 Salaries

While Ronda Rousey was unquestionably the star of the UFC 184 event on Saturday night it was actually Jake Ellenberger who emerged with the highest basic salary on the night.

Ellenberger took home $136,000 for his second round submission victory, while Rousey was just slightly behind with $130,000.

Don’t shed a tear for the dominant female champ though, her deal with the UFC calls for a share of the pay-per-view profits on the night which officials confirmed should see her pocket over a million dollars for her vitory once all is said and done.

The only other fighter to take home a six figure sum on the night was Cat Zingano who banks $100,000 for her 14 seconds of cage-time.

Elsewhere UFC veteran Josh Koscheck earned $78,000 while the debuting Holly Holm bolstered her bank balance to the tune of $50,000.

As always bear in mind these are just the fighters basic salaries and don’t include extras like bonuses and sponsorship money.
