Bellator 283 went down in Tacoma, Washington last Friday night with a whole host of exciting fights and action for fans to sink their teeth into. From title eliminators to rising prospects making a name for themselves, the promotion once again proved why it serves as the number two player in town in the mixed martial arts space.

As per MMA Junkie, we can also have a look at how much the fighters on the card were able to take away courtesy of information they gained from the Washington State Department of Licensing.

Douglas Lima, among a handful of others, will likely be pretty pleased with what they made.

Bellator is viewed by a lot of fighters and pundits alike as a real land of opportunity and it’s not hard to see why given some of these totals, although in equal measure, a few fighters did end up with just $4,000 to their name.

What do you think of Douglas Lima, Lorenz Larkin, Jason Jackson and Usman Nurmagomedov walking away with over six figures each? What did you think of the card as a whole and the event-wide average payouts?
