These numbers, of course, don't include the various "secret" bonuses the UFC pays many of its top fighters for PPV buys, etc.

Hope this helps.
Very cool man thanks. Keep posting these on future events Repped

Wow Monson only got $13,000 and it was a title fight. I know he lost but damn that's nothing.

UFC doesn't give their fighters good money, Florian was in the co-main event at UFC 64 and only received 8,000 for going 5 rounds with Sherk.

Yeah it's crazy. Brandon Vera got $40,000 compared to Monson's 13. If I'm reading it right Vera would have still walked away with 20 even if he lost.

Yeah, Monson definitely got hosed in the regular salaries, but I really wouldn't be surprised if he got some additional money from bonuses and a small cut of the PPV. For a guy coming off a 16-bout winning streak and fighting in a co-main event, $13,000 was hopefully just a starting point.

(As an FYI, TUF Finale salaries are also here.)

How about GSP, he won and got less than Hughes, I've talked about this many times, the amounts are not necessarily bad for a night's work but I don't think it's distributed correctly or evenly. The UFC definitley needs to take a look at the pay structure. A title contender should be making alot more than some undercard fighter plain and simple.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?



Favorite Fighters:

Chuck Liddell
Rich Franklin
Diego Sanchez

Contract fighters, like Sylvia, Hughes, GSP, Liddel, Franklin etc... all get a salary too, just like the winners of TUF. they get a yearly allowance so they can live and train on top of the fight payouts and bonuses.

It's like I said before, it's your name, not your fighting.

Hughes got 150 for beating Royce Gracie... Royce got 400k to lose (the most anyone has ever been paid that I know of.)

Monson got screwed over there. I could understand if Sylvia won 20k or something.

What's up with Nick Diaz? Now I REALLY don't get it. He made more than most of the fighters to win, and they STILL didn't show his fight!

Diaz is a pretty exciting guy to watch, even tho his fight wasn't aired he still gets paid well. He may not get the extra PPV payment but he puts on a good show usually. Like you said its the name of the fighter, and people like watching Diaz
