OMFGZ I can't believe Sonnen only made $50k. UFC need to learn how to start paying their fighters, and stop filling the pockets of Dana White.

Pat Healy had a nice pay day. Sub and FOTN. Man I bet he feels like he's won the lottery!

I'm sure Chael made substantially more with the ppv buys and bonuses Dana probably gave him for promoting the fight.

I think people are starting to realize that there's more to fighter pay than just what we see. This may not apply to every fighter of course, but you're correct with your sarcasm on this point, lol. Chael walked away with a substantial amount of money. I doubt 50,000 is even in the ballpark of his actual earnings.

It'd be interesting to see what fighters legitimately make, but I understand the need for privacy.

Bisping is overpaid
