UFC 130 salaries: "Rampage" Jackson ($250K), Frank Mir ($250K) lead fighter payroll

http://mmajunkie.com/news/23805/ufc-...er-payroll.mma

Quote:
Co-main-event winners Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Frank Mir were the top earners at this past weekend's UFC 130 event. The total payroll for the show was $931,000.

Both competitors earned disclosed paydays of $250,000. Jackson's was a flat rate while Mir earned $125,000 to show and an additional $125,000 as a win bonus.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today requested and received the list of disclosed paydays from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

UFC 130 took place this past Saturday, May 28, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The night's main card aired on pay-per-view, and the preliminary card aired on Spike TV and streamed on Facebook.

The full payouts included:

Quinton "Rampage" Jackson: $250,000 (no win bonus)
def. Matt Hamill: $32,000

Frank Mir: $250,000 (includes $125,000 win bonus)
def. Roy Nelson: $15,000

Travis Browne: $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus)
def. Stefan Struve: $21,000

Rick Story: $34,000 ($17,000 win bonus)
def. Thiago Alves: $ 33,000

Brian Stann: $46,000 ($23,000 win bonus)
def. Jorge Santiago: $36,000

Demetrious Johnson: $12,000 ($6,000 win bonus)
def. Miguel Torres: $30,000

Tim Boetsch: $36,000 ($18,000 win bonus)
def. Kendall Grove: $28,000

Gleison Tibau: $50,000 ($25,000 win bonus)
def. Rafaello Oliveira: $10,000

Michael McDonald: $12,000 ($6,000 win bonus)
def. Chris Cariaso: $4000

Renan Barao: $10,000 ($5,000 win bonus)
def. Cole Escovedo: $6,000

Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other "locker room" or special bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. They also do not include portions of the pay-per-view revenue that some top-level fighters receive.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $70,000 UFC 130 bonuses to Browne ("KO of the Night"), Tibau ("Submission of the Night"), and Stann and Santiago ("Fight of the Night").

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.

wow nelson only 15,000, he won the ultimate fighter!

Nelson got screwed over pretty hard. Kendall Grove even made more than him.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I always get pissed looking at this lists.

Hope is just a scheme to escape taxes and the guys receive lots of green "under the table".

I'm sure this is true, otherwise fighters would complain all the time.

Nelson just came from a number 1 contenders fight and he is only earning $15,000. Absolute disagrace. Pay fighters what they deserve you greedy Zuffa bastards. I love Zuffa, the UFC and Dana, but $15,000? ****!

Maybe he (Nelson) should try showing up in shape and winning fights. I am quite sure that would have a positive effect on his paydays. He has only won 2 of his last 6 fights, and the people he beat were mid tier at best. Still though, 15000 does seem low. I like Nelson, but his lack of commitment confuses me. He will never be a contender coming in in that kind of shape.

Things that stand out are Nelson's low pay , Rampage and Mir's incredibly inflated pay and Torres earning more than Mighty Mouse even with a win bonus added.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

does not matter what shape he is in 15k for a co mainevent fighter is disgustful. Danan white probably spends that in one night of partying.

Roy didn't have to take the money. If you are going to act like a can, you are probably going to get paid like one.

Come one Roy, lose some weight and take it seriously!
