UFC 184 Fighter Salaries: Ellenberger Edges Out Rousey For Biggest Purse

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has released the reported fighter payouts for this past Saturday’s UFC 184: Rousey vs. Zingano pay-per-view event.

Rousey, who made quick work of number one contender Cat Zingano, submitting the previously undefeated prospect in just 14 seconds, earned $130,000 to Zingano’s $100,000, according to figures released by the CSAC.
