If you’ve ever wondered why top fighters either go to or stay in the PFL, you won’t any longer.

The Georgia Athletic & Entertainment Commission recently released the PFL disclosed salaries (via MMA Fighting) and there were some interesting figures to say the least.

Anthony Pettis — who competed in a submission defeat to Stevie Ray at PFL 5 late last month — took home a massive $750,000 fight purse.

PFL star and undefeated women’s lightweight Kayla Harrison, meanwhile, took home $500,000 following her quick first-round TKO win over Kaitlin Young at PFL 6 last week.

Other fighters who earned six-figure purses were:

  • Rory MacDonald ($250,000)
  • Omari Akhmedov ($206,000)
  • Ray Cooper ($200,000)
  • Magomed Magomedkerimov ($200,000)
  • Lance Palmer ($170,000)
  • Brendan Loughnane ($170,000)
  • Nathan Schulte ($150,000)
  • Jeremy Stephens ($100,000)

Full PFL Disclosed Salaries

It’s clear to see why Pettis made the choice to sign with the PFL once his contract with the UFC expired as the former lightweight champion was never earning that much during his tenure with the Las Vegas-based promotion.

As for Harrison, it’s also made abundantly clear why she re-signed with the PFL earlier this year following her period of free agency.

Don’t be surprised to see more names join the PFL roster in the coming years.
