Fighters less than six octagon appearances to their name will only make $2,500. 6-10 fights in the UFC will get you $5,000. For 11-15 octagon appearances, fighters will make $10,000 and an extra $5,000 for 16-20 fights. Long-time UFC fighters with more than 20 fights will receive $20,000.

Title challengers and champions will receive a bit more, regardless of how long they have been part of the UFC. Challengers will receive $30,000 while champions get $40,000.
