Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other "locker room" or special bonuses Zuffa LLC oftentimes pays.

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
