WEC 46 Salaries: Urijah Faber Earns $62,000

California native Urijah Faber was the big draw for Sunday's WEC 46 at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento and was rewarded with an event-high payday of $62,000.

Faber earned $26,000 to show, a $26,000 bonus for winning and another $10,000 for Submission of the Night. Faber's rear-naked choke over Raphael Assuncao may have brought him a bigger prize, though: Faber will be next in line to challenge Jose Aldo for the title.

Mike Brown, another former featherweight champion, was the second highest earner with $38,000 for his win over Anthony Morrison. Salaries for all 18 fighters are below.

In addition to below, Will Campuzano (Fight of the Night), Coty Wheeler (Fight of the Night) and Urijah Faber (Knockout of the Night) were each awarded a $10,000 bonus at the post-fight press conference.
