The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale salaries: Pyle, Nelson, Barry get top paydays

http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2012/1...laries-paydays

Main-card fighters Mike Pyle, Roy Nelson and Pat Barry were the top earners at this past weekend's UFC event, The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today requested and received the list of disclosed paydays from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The total disclosed payroll for the event was $447,000.

The event took place this past Saturday, Dec. 15, at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The main card aired on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.

The full list of paydays included:

Roy Nelson: $48,000 (includes $24,000 win bonus)
def. Matt Mitrione: $12,000

Colton Smith: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Mike Ricci: $8,000

Patrick Barry: $44,000 (includes $22,000 win bonus)
def. Shane Del Rosario: $20,000

Dustin Poirier: $34,000 (includes $17,000 win bonus)
def. Jonathan Brookins: $20,000

Mike Pyle: $78,000 (includes $39,000 win bonus)
def. James Head: $12,000

Johnny Bedford: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Marcos Vinicius: $8,000

Rustam Khabilov: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Vinc Pichel: $8,000

Anthony Waldburger: $28,000 (includes $14,000 win bonus)
def. Nick Catone: $13,000

Hugo Viana: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. Reuben Duran: $8,000

Mike Rio: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
def. John Cofer: $8,000

Timothy Elliott: $12,000 (includes $6,000 win bonus)
def. Jared Papazian: $6,000

Additionally, while their payments aren't figured in the official tally, the UFC paid show money to Guillard ($42,000) and Varner ($12,000). Their bout was canceled a few hours prior to fight time when Varner became ill.

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 TUF 16 Finale bonuses to Barry ("KO of the Night"), Waldburger ("Submission of the Night") and Elliott and Papazian ("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.

For complete coverage of the TUF 16 Finale, stay tuned to the UFC Events section of the site.
I thought meathead would get paid more, for a short notice fight.

He probably did, but it was most likely undisclosed as what he was paid was what his contract said.

I was looking it up when I saw this yesterday. He is 3-0 in 2012 with 3 TKO/KO finishes. He also got 33K to show and 33K to win last fight(and 40K bonus) so he got a slight raise. But yeah he is making decent money.
