0

Following a successful Bellator 160 event in Anaheim, California on Friday night, the fighter salaries for all of the fighters who competed on the card have been released.

MMAFighting.com was first to report the figures, which were released by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) after the event, and saw Benson Henderson top the list with a $75,000 guaranteed fight purse. His opponent, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire, earned the second highest reported pay day at $50,000.
