Kimbo Slice Paid Half a Milliion Dollars For 14 Seconds


More fighters are making big money in MMA these days. Even with a terrible showing, Kimbo Slice still brought home $500,000 to get Knocked Out in 14 seconds. This does not include any money he probably earned by sponsors, such as Tapout.

Andrei Arlovski who also brought down $500,000 but at least had a good showing, knocking out his opponent. Gina Carano, who probably was one of the biggest draws to the fight and actualy had a pretty exciting fight, only took home $25,000. In my opinion, she got jipped. All together Elite XC paid out over $1,319,000 in fighter base salaries not including insurance, licensed, tax, sponsorships or any other payments.

Seth Petruzelli: $50,000 (includes $15,000 win bonus)*
