Here are the UFC 147 salaries where Rich Franklin beat Wanderlei Silva in a unanimous decision.

Quote:
Wanderlei Silva: $265,000 ($200,000 to show, $65,000 Fight of the Night bonus)

Rich Franklin: $215,000 ($75,000 to show, $75,000 win bonus, $65,000 Fight of the Night bonus)
So Rich Franklin signed a contract where he makes 75k to show and 75k to win.

He probably signed a 6 fight contract so its possible he signed this contract in 2009. Which would make the numbers completely fair.


"EDIT"

Doing a bit of research i found out that i am correct in my guess.

Rich Franklin signed a 6 fight contract in 2009 and his first fight was at UFC 103. Which would make Cung Le his fifth fight on his contract and he has 1 fight to go. Making a potential 150k pay day in 2009 was alot. Hell its alot now.
