Disclosed Fighter Payroll: $114,500

Not bad for their first show under Zuffa ownership, if you ask me. You have to remember that the figures released to the NSAC do not include bonuses, sponsors, and other income recieved by the fighters. You can bank on the fact that the main eventers pulled in a lot more than what is noted above. However, the salary alone is not a bad payday by any stretch of the imagination.

It was previously announced that highlights from this show will be aired in the summer of this year by the Versus Network. I would be looking forward to that but I will probably see them long before then on the internet. The Versus Network will be airing some live WEC shows as well as some taped highlight shows which will be one hour long.
