UFC on FX 3 salaries ***SPOILERS***

Quote:
Mike Pyle ($66,000), Demetrious Johnson ($40,000) and Mike Pierce ($40,000) were the top money winners at "UFC on FX 3" this past weekend.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today obtained the list of disclosed pays from the Florida State Boxing Commission, which oversees MMA under the state's Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

The event took place June 8 at BankAtlantic Center in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Sunrise, Fla. The main card aired on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.

The total disclosed payroll for the event was $423,500.

The headliner was the first flyweight main event in UFC history and featured a unanimous decision win by Demetrious Johnson against Ian McCall ($9,000) in a rematch from their controversial March draw. Johnson moved on to a flyweight title fight against Joseph Benavidez, which likely will take place in late fall. In the co-main event, Erick Silva's ($16,000) impressive start to his UFC career continued with a first-round submission of Charlie Brenneman ($18,000).

The full list of paydays included:

Demetrious Johnson: $40,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus)
def. Ian McCall: $9,000

Erick Silva: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Charlie Brenneman: $18,000

Mike Pyle: $66,000 (includes $33,000 win bonus)
def. Josh Neer: $14,000

Eddie Wineland: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Scott Jorgensen: $20,500

Mike Pierce: $40,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus)
def. Carlos Eduardo Rocha: $8,000

Seth Baczynski: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Lance Benoist: $8,000

Matt Grice: $12,000 (includes $6,000 win bonus)
def. Leonard Garcia: $20,000

Dustin Pague: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Jared Papazian: $6,000

Tim Means: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Justin Salas: $8,000

Buddy Roberts: $12,000 (includes $6,000 win bonus)
def. Caio Magalhaes: $8,000

Henry Martinez: $12,000 (includes $6,000 win bonus)
def. Bernardo Magalhaes: $6,000

Sean Pierson: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Jake Hecht: $8,000

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.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $40,000 UFC on FX 3 bonuses to Pyle ("KO of the Night"), Silva ("Submission of the Night"), Wineland and Jorgensen ("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.

I find them pretty low. Uncle creepy being a top fighter and getting 9k is pretty sad, I know they got more from backroom payouts and bonuses but the lighter weights sure do get the shaft.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Pretty shocking that Mamed Khalidov felt that he deserved more money(over 20/20) than 90% of those guys all higher ranked than him and in the championship level.

I'm sure the UFC paid a guy like Uncle Creepy more than 9k but I don't see them ever pulling in young guys that could play other sports like football and basketball into MMA with these type of reported payouts.

$9000 Guaranteed (Show up) money for a Main Eventer is shocking to me. Makes it even more shocking when I heard Timothy Bradley got $5 Million Guaranteed (Show up) money against Manny Pacquiao. Add in all the Sponsorship, PPV cuts, and Bonus money and the gap increases further.

Guess what, THIS ISN'T ******* BOXING! There are probably about a dozen boxers who get paid that much, everyone else earns far, far less.

Yeah but 9/9 is still pretty low, guys that wash out of TUF get 8/8 split. He went into this the number one Fly weight in the world and you are getting Jeremy Larsen, Josh Ferguson and Ryan McGillivray money.

How people can defend 9/9 pay is ridiculous. And WHO GIVES A **** HOW MUCH THEY MAKE FROM SPONSORSHIPS??? That stuff should have ZERO effect on how much they make from the UFC showup/win money.

9000$ three times a year is still more than 90% of the people with normal jobs. Plus he gets sponsorship money and probably has a win bonus. Don't think he's not making enough money. It's just that the other guys make so much more that it's not fair for him.
