Burkman was the night’s top earner with $32,000, while Jon Fitch made $30,000 for his quick loss. In his last fight with the UFC, Fitch made more than double his current salary.

It is important to note that these fighters often make more than the released salaries because of sponsorships and additional bonuses that are not released by the commission.
