According to figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), former UFC heavyweight champion took home the largest disclosed payout figure from all those who competed at the first World Series of Fighting (WSOF) event at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Nevada. Arlovski earned a total of $60,000 for his first-round TKO win over Devin Cole.

Just behind Arlovski is another UFC veteran in Anthony Johnson. He earned a total of $55,000 for his first-round stoppage of D.J. Linderman.

Notably, former UFC veteran Miguel Torres pulled in $18,000, a full $6,000 more than Marlon Moraes. Moraes, however, defeated Torres by split decision. Similarly, Tyson Steele only earned $10,000 despite besting Gregor Gracie, who pulled in $25,000, by TKO in the first frame.
