World Series of Fighting 3’s Payroll Was $200k

World Series of Fighting might not be in the business of making millionaires like Dana White and the UFC are, but they are in the business of paying their fighters a reasonable salary all things considered. That is on full display from this Friday’s event in Las Vegas that was headlined by Jon Fitch vs. Josh Burkman, where both men were paid around the same amount for their main event fight. For Jon Fitch it was a severe cut from his $70,000 that he was making in the UFC, but still better money than expected!
