WEC 50 Fighters emerged wounded and thousands of dollars richer.

Top earners for the event includes Scott Jorgensen ($25,000), main-event winner and bantamweight champ ($22,000) and preliminary-card winner Danny Castillo ($19,000). Not to mention they are on top as of the moment. Who would have thought that after making bruises, cuts and broken bones you get paid thousands of dollars? is a pretty good sport .

These are the disclosed paydays from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The total disclosed payroll for the event was $221,500.

50 took place Aug. 18 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, and the night’s main card aired on Versus.

The total list of paydays included:

Dominick Cruz: $22,000 (includes $11,000 win bonus)
def. Joseph Benavidez: $17,500

: $12,000 ($6,000 win bonus)
def. Shane Roller: $16,000

Chad Mendes: $11,000 ($5,500 win bonus)
def. Cub Swanson: $11,000

Scott Jorgensen: $25,000 ($12,500 win bonus)
def. Brad Pickett: $5,000

Bart Palaszewski: $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus)
def. Zach Micklewright: $3,000

Javier Vazquez $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus)
def. Mackens Semerzier: $4,000

Maciej Jewtuszko: $6,000 ($3,000 win bonus)
def. Anthony Njokuani: $7,000

: $14,000 ($7,000 win bonus)
def. Dave Jansen: $4,000

Fredson Paixao: $6,000 ($3,000 win bonus)
def. Bryan Caraway: $4,000

Danny Castillo: $19,000 ($9,500 win bonus)
def. Dustin Poirier: $3,000

The figures does not include the deductions. The sponsor’s fee is not added as well. These also do not include the WEC’s traditional “fight night” bonuses. The $10,000 WEC 50 bonuses went to Maciej Jewtuszko (“KO of the Night”), Anthony Pettis (“Submission of the Night”), and Scott Jorgensen and Brad Pickett (“Fight of the Night”). In short, these are just plain salaries. It must be higher than that when the other bonuses are added.
