Tomorrow night, Bellator MMA will make it’s long-awaited return to our screens with the stacked Bellator 214 card.

This card will be topped by the final bout of the promotion’s action-packed Heavyweight Grand Prix, as Bellator light heavyweight champ Ryan Bader and heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko are set to collide with heavyweight gold on the line.

Elsewhere on the card, we’ll see red-hot featherweight prospect Aaron Pico take on another tough test in Henry Corrales, and the streaking Juan Archuleta battle the dangerous Ricky Bandejas. The card will also feature the MMA debut of former pro wrestling star Jake Swagger, who will take on J.W. Kiser.

On Friday morning, MMA Fighting obtained the purses for this epic Bellator 214 card from the California State Athletic Commission.

Far and away the biggest earner on this exciting card is the MMA legend Fedor Emelianenko. He’ll pocket a flat-rate of $300,000 for his main event duties. His opponent Ryan Bader will also pocket a nice sum, as he’s set to earn a flat rate of $150,000.

Aaron Pico, meanwhile, will earn $45,000 to show and an additional $45,000 if he wins, while his foe Henry Corrales will earn a show/win split of $35,000/$35,000.

Juan Archuleta will earn a flat rate of $25,000, and his opponent Ricky Bandejas will earn a flat rate of $30,000.

Jack Swagger, finally, will earn a flat rate of $50,000. His opponent J.W. Kiser will get a $7,000/$7,000 show/win split.
