How much do Bellator fighters make?

I started watching Bellator recently, when they started broadcasting it in a brazilian channel. I like the quality of the fighters and the event is usually entertaining, so I was wondering:
- how much their fighters make per fight?
- who makes more money? Lombard?
- they seem to fight more often than UFC fighters, am I right?

In the tournament....
10k and 10k for the quarter-final win
20k and 20k for the semi-final win
20k and 20k for the final win

And that's how you get to 100,000k

Not bad for 3 months work.

It differs on non tournament fight. If someone wins a Bellator tourney they get 100k total for three fights. It pays like this:

1st round: 10k/10k
2nd round: 15k/15k
finals: 20k/30k

For a total of 100k if you win.
