WEC 50 Fighter Salaries

MMAFighting.com has the WEC 50 fighter salaries in advance for Wednesday night's Versus event in Las Vegas.

Although Dominick Cruz is the bantamweight world champion, his purse, $11,000 to show and another $11,000 to win, is lower than challenger Joseph Benavidez, who will make $17,500 plus a $17,500 bonus if he captures the title from Cruz.

Of course, the salaries reported to the Nevada athletic commission do not necessarily represent a fighter's final earnings once sponsorships and potential extra bonuses are factored in.

The purses (show/win bonus) are below.

Joseph Benavidez $17,500/$17,500 vs. Dominick Cruz $11,000/$11,000
