The salaries from this past weekend’s World Series Of Fighting 3 event have been released and show that victorious headliner Josh Burkman was the evening’s highest earner with $32,000.
It’s interesting to note that WSOF don’t appear to have paid over the odds for former UFC fighter Jon Fitch. His previous basic salary was $66,000, but WSOF are paying him just $30,000.
Another former UFC fighter Jacob Volkmann has also had to take a substantial pay cut. He’s now on $14,000 (including win bonus) with WSOF, compared to $40,000 with the UFC.
