Stefan 'Skyscraper' Struve towered over all the other fighters on the UFC of Fuel TV: Struve vs Miocic card, and he also towered above them at the bank.  Struve took home a cool $98,000 for his victory over Stipe Miocic in the just-completed event.

Before we go any further, we should note that most fights staged outside of the U.S. don't have officially released fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official.  However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter's pay based on official purse info released from past fights.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 22 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember - this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event). 




Stefan Struve: $98,000 ($29,000 to show, $29,000 win bonus, $40,000 Fight of the Night bonus)
