Lesnar ($450,000), Couture ($250,000) Top UFC 91 Payroll

Quote:
Newly-crowned UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar was the top earner at UFC 91, earning $450,000 for his second-round TKO of former title-holder Randy Couture, who received $250,000 for his losing effort.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission today released the fighter salaries, which do not include bonuses and also exclude taxes, fees, sponsor payments, and other miscellaneous payments and fees.

The total disclosed payroll for the event, excluding the $60,000 UFC 91 fight night bonuses paid to Aaron Riley, Jorge Gurgel, Dustin Hazelett, and Jeremy Stephens, was $1,118,000.

Lesnar and Couture are also expected to pocket a hefty bonus based on the eventís pay-per-view buys, which were predicted to top one million.

The salaries for UFC 91[listed as (total salary/win bonus) for winners and (total salary) for losers], as reported to the NSAC, were:

* Brock Lesnar ($450,000/$200,000) def. Randy Couture ($250,000)
* Kenn Florian ($80,000/$40,000) def. Joe Stevenson ($35,000)
* Dustin Hazelett ($28,000/$14,000) def. Tamdan McCrory ($10,000)
* Gabriel Gonzaga ($110,000/$55,000) def. Josh Hendricks ($8,000)
* Demian Maia ($40,000/$20,000) def. Nate Quarry ($25,000)
* Aaron Riley ($8,000/$4,000) def. Jorge Gurgel ($10,000)
* Jeremy Stephens ($16,000/$8,000) def. Rafael dos Anjos ($4,000)
* Mark Bocek ($18,000/$9,000) def. Alvin Robinson ($7,000)
* Matt Brown ($16,000/$8,000) def. Ryan Thomas ($3,000)

I thought Lesnar made $500,000 when he fought Mir?
