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.
