**Disclaimer – The dollar figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. In addition, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can often be a substantial portion of a fighter’s income.  They also do not include any other special bonuses the organization may have paid its fighters.  Basically, the above figures are the bare minimum required to be reported to the CSAC.
