|UFC 173's top earner 'Ruthless' Robbie Lawler|
These salary figures do not include any individual fighter endorsement earnings for this event, nor do they include any undisclosed bonuses, which are commonly paid to fighters in private by Zuffa. Fighters pay out of pocket for training, licensing fees and related expenses. Fighters spend months training for these fights, so they are being paid for the work they have already completed in the gym, as well as their performance on fight night.
Robbie Lawler was the top earner of the night with his $200,000 payout.
