Under the new UFC Athlete Outfitting program’s payout tiers, fighters are paid based on their total number of UFC bouts, as well as Zuffa-era WEC (January 2007 and later) and Zuffa-era Strikeforce (April 2011 and later) fights. Competitors with 1-5 bouts receive $2,500 per appearance; 6-10 bouts get $5,000; 11-15 bouts earn $10,000; 16-20 bouts pocket $15,000; and 21 bouts and more get $20,000. Additionally, champions earn $40,000 while title challengers get $30,000.
In addition to experience-based pay, UFC fighters will receive, in perpetuity royalty, payments amounting to 20-30 percent of any UFC merchandise sold that bears their likeness, according to officials.
