Bellator ‘Dynamite’ Salary Report: Tito Ortiz Earns $300K Payday While Other’s Make $1,750

Tito Ortiz interview

This past weekend, at Bellator ‘Dynamite’, fans who tuned in were treated to fireworks, Crazy Pride lady, kickboxing and MMA.

We also saw a one-night light heavyweight tournament, featuring four of the promotions best 205’ers. Former UFC fighter Phil Davis ended up winning the whole thing and will now face the champ, Liam McGeary, next.

McGeary fought and beat Tito Ortiz in the night’s main event. The CSAC released the disclosed payroll for the event and no surprise, Ortiz, even in defeat, was the top earner with nearly half of the total payroll for the whole event.

The next top earner was Davis, who earned $130,000 for winning two fights in one night. The champ, who beat Ortiz, took him $50,000.

It should be said that the blow numbers do not reflect any money earned through sponsors.
