The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Saturday’s “World Series of Fighting 1” event. Andrei Arlovski (Pictured) was the night’s highest earner. The former UFC heavyweight champ scored a total of $60,000 for his TKO victory over Devin Cole in the show’s featured attraction. Half of Arlovski’s paycheck came via win bonus. Please keep in mind, the numbers that get reported to the athletic commissions are only of what’s required. These figures do not include deductions for items such as licenses and taxes. Additionally, they do not contain money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes represent a substantial portion of a fighter’s total income.
