I think the most interesting example is Joe Lauzon because the writer actually spoke to Lauzon's agent. Including sponsorships and a Fight of the Night bonus, he was paid $80,000 when he fought Florian at UFN 13. His agent estimated that he would have only make $4,500 at most if he was fighting in a regional promotion.
Excellent post there. VERY informative.
