That's true, but my remark about bonuses wasn't about the pay for the average fighter.

Basically what Toxic said. This is a quote from the link I posted:

While not confirmed, it is believed that this bonus structure is consistent across the board for the top fighters who receive pay-per-view bonuses.
My mention of bonuses was in response to:

I don't think Dana would have offered enough since $1.84mil was the total fighter salaries for UFC 129, which was the largest UFC event and its 2011 now.
I used the PPV bonus scale info to illustrate that $1.84M is extremely unlikely to be the end of the fighters' pay for this event.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
