All of it. All the money earned from UFC is considered an income for the fighter and hence taxed accordingly as per the prevailing tax laws in the United States of America. The tax treatment for a UFC fighter earning $100,000 per year would be the same as the tax treatment for a guy working in a bank and earning the same $100,000.
Currently, the shortest fighter in the UFC is John Lineker. He stands 5'2".

The UFC fighter Thiago Silva is in jail. He is in jail for making threats to his wife.
In short - not as much as their UFC counterparts. UFC is the biggest MMA promotion in the world and the fighters there get paid nicely. The newer guys may not make as much money as the established names, but a talented fighter can easily earn a six digit salary with the UFC every year. The other MMA promotions may not pay as much. Fighters usually earn a few thousand dollars per fight and getting a 5 digit pay out for a fight is a big deal in smaller promotions.
my friend is a doctor in las vegas who has done a ufc show and he said he made 12,000 before taxes
