The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has released the following salary figures for World Series of Fighting 4: Spong vs DeAnda, held Saturday, August 10, 2013, at the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, CA.
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.
Tyrone Spong was the top earner of the night with his $31,000 payout.
