UFC Charlotte salaries: Matt Brown and Anthony Smith lead the way
The salaries from UFC Charlotte have been disclosed.
On Saturday, the UFC headed to Charlotte, North Carolina for a pretty solid UFC Charlotte card. In the main event, Jailton Almeida took on Jairzinho Rozensturik while in the co-main event, Johnny Walker took on Anthony Smith.
Ultimately, it was Almeida winning by first-round submission in the main event to pick up the biggest win of his career. In the co-main event, Walker won a unanimous decision to enter the top five at light heavyweight.
After the event, the salaries have been released, and Matt Brown – who KO’d Court McGee on the prelims – and Smith who lost to Walker were the two highest-earning fighters from the card.
North Carolina Boxing and Combat Sports interim executive director Alvin Coley provided documentation to MMA Junkie that showed the full disclosed fighter payouts from the event. However, it should be noted that these figures do not include performance bonuses, sponsorships, or any other bonuses.
