Ketlen Vieira: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Kelly Faszholz: $10,000

Payout Perspective:

If not for missing weight, Lineker would have made $40K/$40K while his opponent, Dodson made $30K to show and likely another $30K win bonus.  Interesting to note that Will Brooks is already making $53,000 to show.  He made $50K/$50K in his UFC debut this past July at the TUF 23 Finale.  For being a veteran, Nate Marquardt made the most with $112,000 not to mention his Reebok payout of $20,000.

    I don’t know why anyone would go into mma with pay like that for professional sports, mma has to be the lowest paying of the pro sports in the USA. But then again I guess there are not a lot of pro sports for small guys

    There is more than 6 US sports you know, some pay way lower than $10,000 + $2,500 which is the lowest a UFC fighter can get with a loss.

    Jon Dodson was probably the biggest name on the card, the cars didn’t do a big gate or rating.

Got something to say?
