UFC 156 salaries: Evans, Overeem and Aldo earn biggest payouts

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Feb 04, 2013 at 12:40 pm ET

Rashad Evans ($300,000), Alistair Overeem ($285,714.29) and Jose Aldo ($240,000) were the top earners at this past weekend's UFC 156 event.

MMAjunkie.com today requested and obtained the list of disclosed paydays from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The total payroll for the event was $1,755,714.29.

UFC 156 took place this past Saturday, Feb. 2, at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The main card, including Aldo's successful title defense over Frankie Edgar, aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

The full list of UFC 156 paydays included:

Jose Aldo: $240,000 (includes $120,000 win bonus)
def. Frankie Edgar: $120,000

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira: $174,000 (includes $67,000 win bonus)
def. Rashad Evans: $300,000

Antonio Silva: $70,000 (includes no win bonus)
def. Alistair Overeem: $285,714.29

Demian Maia: $120,000 (includes $60,000 win bonus)
def. Jon Fitch: $66,000

Joseph Benavidez: $60,000 (includes $30,000 win bonus)
def. Ian McCall: $9,000

Evan Dunham: $46,000 (includes $23,000 win bonus)
def. Gleison Tibau: $33,000

Tyron Woodley: $87,000 (includes $43,500 win bonus)
def. Jay Hieron: $12,000

Bobby Green: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Jacob Volkmann: $22,000

Isaac Vallie-Flagg: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Yves Edwards: $21,000

Dustin Kimura: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Chico Camus: $8,000

Francisco Rivera: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Edwin Figueroa: $10,000

Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other "locker room" or special discretionary bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. They also do not include portions of the pay-per-view revenue that some top-level fighters receive.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $50,000 UFC 156 bonuses to Silva ("KO of the Night"), Green ("Submission of the Night"), and Aldo and Edgar ("Fight of the Night").

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
