MMAWeekly has obtained the fighter salary information for World Extreme Cagefighting 31, which took place on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas, from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The event was the WEC's seventh since being purchased by Ultimate Fighting Championship parent company Zuffa, LLC and it was also the its fourth live event on cable television channel Versus.

The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that Zuffa and the WEC are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners' bonuses.

The only one that I am surprised about is Marshall. How in the world did he only make $10,000? This was his NINTH WEC fight, and he is the light heavyweight champion. No way he should make less than Chael Sonnen, who LOST!

yeah well they have contract man.
they paid as much as there contract are telling that they have to paid for each fighter.

i am sure that if a guy do very well, he will have a better contract as soon as the old one will expired.

I guess that's what happens when you sign a long-term contract
