The total disclosed payroll for the event was $346,000, with middleweight/light-heavyweight champion David Branch and Justin Gaethje taking home nearly a third of the total tally. Branch submitted Teddy Holder to become the first World Series of Fighting two-weight champ, and Gaethje knocked out Luis Palamino to retain his 155-pound strap.

The rest of the card was left to share the remaining $146K between them, with two fighters receiving just $1000 for their efforts. Of course these are only the salaries disclosed to the commission, and do not include any added compensation or bonus packages.
