I am glad Chuck sits at the top. That guy defined the UFC/MMA for quite a while and still does for some people.
Which champions? because outside of Anderson Silva, Bisping has been here longer than Aldo or any other champion having the belt. This business is all about selling the product, if you sell the product, you get more money and Silva had that problem for a long time, as in not getting high PPV numbers until the last year or two.

Not really a Bisping fan but to say he makes more than champions when the champs haven't been here long or haven't had the belt long, doesn't really make a strong case.

Dude owes pretty much everything to the UFC. He's a relative newcomer to the organization and was already a top 3 earner. Makes no sense. Such a cool dude when he wants to be, but man he made it sound like Dana treated him badly.

Anderson should shoot up the ladder man.

At the TUF 14 Finale bisping got paid 275k to show and 150k to win. Thats $425,000. In his last fight, he made $275k to show when he lost against Chael. Thats more than Anderson Sliva, Chael Sonnen, or Tito Ortiz made at UFC 148. Bisping's to show money was the same as Forrest's to show and win money. That's crazy. Now, I understand that in under the table money, these other guys are probably making more. But why does Bisping get $425,000 to fight and win, while Anderson gets paid $200,000? Hell, Brock Lesnar, the biggest draw in the UFC ever, was making $500,000. You can't tell me that Bisping is worth almost as much as Brock. At UFC 129, GSP made $200,000 to show and $200,000 to win. And Bisping made more than that to beat Mayhem Miller.

I am very aware of this just being what pay is revealed. Im just trying to compare apples to apples because we can't know really how much a fighter makes after PPV buys and sponsors.

I actually like watching him fight but it baffles me how he's come so far in his career without a single top ten win.

Well its not really apples to apples... Fighters who get a cut of the PPV money make MULTI-millions of dollars per fight, so the disclosed fight purse means VERY little. There are a few fighters who dont even get a win bonus, because they know their money is going to come from the PPV.

So why does bisping get so much from his purse? Probably because he doesnt get much from the back end, and he is the face of MMA in the UK..

Why does Silva and GSP make so little from their purses? Because the purse amount is irrelevant. It could be $1.00 and they would still make multi-million dollar pay days from PPV money.

That is why lists like this are USELESS. They are comparing flawed data!

I'd be willing to bet that if you took the money that Anderson makes from Brazillian sponsors and ambassadors, he's probably the highest paid guy by a landslide, well over Chuck I'm sure. Now, Jon is well on his way to becoming the highest paid MMA fighter ever, but as of now, I'd bet anything it is Anderson. GSP might get the same treament from Canada, I don't follow him so I'm not sure.

It would be interesting to see what cut of PPV the main eventers get, must be pretty significant, maybe $1 per ppv sale?

More. Overeem got 2 dollars per PPV buy right out the gate. Add that to his 400 000 base pay (including win bonus) and you get 1 900 000 in total from the UFC alone. Now add the sponsorship money etc..

How much does Bisping get a fight? because after his next fight he could be in the top 5 right? that is quite unbelievable when you think that guys like Brock, Anderson, BJ, Jones, Wandy etc. are below him, with that said i think they get a % of the PPV too so not a true reflection of their earnings but interesting non the less.
