UFC Fight Night Salaries

I hope a thread wasn't already started on the UFC Boards,if so,SORRY.

Here's the latest:

UFCjunkie.com

Rich Clementi — $20,000 ($10,000 to show, $10,000 to win)
Ross Pointon — $5,000 ($5,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Clementi wins second-round rear naked choke)

Din Thomas — $24,000 ($12,000 to show, $12,000 to win)
Clay Guida — $5,000 ($5,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Thomas wins via unanimous decision)

Ed Herman — $24,000 ($12,000 to show, $12,000 to win)
Chris Price — $3,000 ($3,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Herman wins via first-round armbar)

Josh Burkman — $14,000 ($7,000 to show, $7,000 to win)
Chad Reiner — $3,000 ($3,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Burkman wins via unanimous decision)

Nathan Marquardt — $44,000 ($22,000 to show, $22,000 to win)
Dean Lister — $11,000 ($11,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Marquardt wins via unanimous decision)

Hermes Franca — $24,000 ($12,000 to show, $12,000 to win)
Spencer Fisher — $13,000 ($13,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Franca wins via second-round TKO)

Jake O’Brien — $18,000 ($9,000 to show, $9,000 to win)
Heath Herring — $6,000 ($6,000 to show, no win bonus)
(O’Brien wins via unanimous decision)

Rashad Evans — $24,000 ($12,000 to show, $12,000 to win)
Sean Salmon — $3,000 ($3,000 to show, no win bonus)
(Evans wins via second-round KO)

My biggest surprise with these figures are Herring initially only making 6K and O'Brien being paid 9K(before the bonusus) and Franca making almost double Fisher. Also Lister making so much less than Marquadt or Nate being the top paid on the card.

Of course maybe this website Numbers are off. Anyways I thought it was interesting to look through and again if this has been done,sorry again.(I did look at 3 to 4 pages and didnt see a title that looked like it would be).

yeah, the difference between Pointon and Herring is just a grand...surprising; to think that he was one of the main attractions.

interesting that herring got paid so little...they were using him to hype up that fight night. he was on there website for the "kiss heard round the world" fight.

oh well, i guess he got the money he deserved.

yeah it was strange. Although like people did say before the fight that it was Spike TV who moved Lister/Marquadt off the main program and not the UFC. So I guess that is one explanation.
