Thanks for these figures, they're always somewhat interesting. I'm surprised how much Serra makes. It's also nice to see Paulo make as much as he does, I like when talented fighters are able afford fighting full-time.

Yeah i agree dude. These paydays seem ok compared to others i have seen. Serra has got himself a good contract, but to be fair to the guy he does put on great fights

...Yeah, Serra was a definite runner up in the green department. Those are some nice winnings. Tito calls the UFC a billion dollar industry. It's cool that fighters can live pretty phat having 2 or 3 fights in a year. Being a champion there's more bing and boom...

Gracie doesn't deserve 15,000 for that performance

Those figures are pretty nice, and Serra earns $210k (inc. KOTN bonus) daaaamn. One thing I disagree with is the 'no win bonus'. eg, for Randy, I say he should've gotten $125k to show and $125k win bonus instead of the lump sum either way. But I mean, it seems a trend that the bigger-named fighters don't have 'win bonuses'. Also, Coleman got $60k? I thought I little more for him ... (even though on fight night Coleman didn't show)

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

they have contracts where in certain fights they dont receieve a win bonus, but receive a PPV sales bonus. several top fighters have this, I know Tito had this in his Forrest loss.
