PAYDAY: UFC Fight Night 35 Salaries - Fighter Purses and Bonus Payouts for 'Rockhold vs Philippou' on FS1 - 1/15/14



The UFC Fight Night 35 payouts have been released by the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission (GAEC). The following salaries have been reported to the GAEC by Zuffa for UFC Fight Night 35: Rockhold vs Philippou on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, at The Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia, near Atlanta. The main card and prelim special aired live on Fox Sports 1.

These salary amounts do not include any individual fighter endorsement earnings for this event, nor do they include any undisclosed bonuses which are commonly paid to fighters by Zuffa in private. Fighters pay out of pocket for training, licensing fees and related expenses. Fighters spend months training in preparation for these fights, so they are being paid for their work already completed in the gym, as well as their performance on fight night.

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold was the top earner of the night with his $130,000 payout.
