Thought there would be more money thrown about than that!

Also the medical suspensions:

The California State Athletic Commission distributed the list of UFC on FOX 1 medical suspensions this afternoon and among the suspended fighters is main event competitor and former champion Cain Velasquez. Cain was suspended for 45 days for precautionary reasons after his TKO defeat to Dos Santos.
UFC on Fox 1 took place last night from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. In the main event of the evening Junior Dos Santos upset Cain Velasquez to become the new UFC heavyweight champion of the world.
The fight lasted just 64 seconds and ended with a knockout of Cain Velasquez live on FOX TV.
In preliminary action Benson Henderson was able to outpoint Clay Guida in an exciting, fast paced three round affair to earn the number one contender seat in the UFC’s lightweight division. He will now face Frankie Edgar for the UFC’s lightweight title in a yet to be announced UFC event in 2012 expected to go down in Japan. Neither Henderson nor Guida where suspended as a result of their three round brawl.
Three fighters received 180 suspensions which serve as the lengthiest received as a result of last weekend’s fight card. “Kid” Yamamoto, Aaron Rosa and Paul Bradley will all need medical clearance if they hope to return before their six-month suspensions are up.
The full list of UFC on FOX suspensions includes:
• Cain Velasquez: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for TKO loss
• Clay Harvison: Suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for TKO loss
• Norifumi Yamamoto: Suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact due to possible left-finger fracture; can be cleared early by a physician
• Darren Uyenoyama: Suspended 60 days with 60 days no contact due to left-eye laceration
• Mackens Semerzier: Suspended 60 days with 60 days no contact due to scalp lacerations; suspended 45 days with 30 days no contact for precautionary reasons
• Paul Bradley: Suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact due to possible left-elbow fracture; can be cleared early by a physician
• Aaron Rosa: Suspended 180 days with 180 days no contact due to a possible left-wrist fracture; can be cleared early by a physician



2012 FFL Team : Hector Lombard, Jake Shields, Demian Maia, Ed Herman, George Sotiropoulus

What I find strange is the fact that JDS has a better base pay than Cain

UFC on FOX - Fighter salaries

Quote:
The California State Athletic Commission released the official fighter salaries for UFC on FOX earlier today, and if you were a follower of June White’s theory that Dana sold his soul to the Devil for the Fox deal, then this is all the evidence you’ll need. The total (disclosed) fighter payroll came out to exactly $666,000. The proof is in the pudding, folks. Start drafting up your PowerPoint conspiracy reports now.

Snatching up nearly half of that payroll, newly crowned heavyweight champ Junior Dos Santos not only walked away with the gold and the glory, but the cash and the girl (Props, Boo) as well. Earning 3,437 dollars per second, Dos Santos collected a $220,000 paycheck that took less effort than a supporting role in an animated kids movie.

The only other fighter even close to Dos Santos in terms of salary was that of his victim, Cain Velasquez, who took home an even $100,000 for his efforts. Check out the full salary list below. Keep in mind, these figures are void of any locker room bonuses, fight bonuses, sponsorships, or any other nonsense.

Junior dos Santos: $220,000 ($110,000 to show, $110,000 to win)
def. Cain Velasquez: $100,000

Ben Henderson: $60,000 ($30,000 to show, $30,000 to win)
def. Clay Guida: $40,000

Dustin Poirier: $20,000 ($10,000 to show, $10,000 to win)
def. Pablo Garza: $8,000

Ricardo Lamas: $20,000 ($10,000 to show, $10,000 to win)
def. Cub Swanson: $15,000

DaMarques Johnson: $28,000 ($14,000 to show, $14,000 to win)
def. Clay Harvison: $8,000

Darren Uyenoyama: $12,000 ($6,000 to show, $6,000 to win)
def. Norifumi Yamamoto: $15,000

Robert Peralta: $16,000 ($8,000 to show, $8,000 to win)
def. Mackens Semerzier: $8,000

Alex Caceres: $16,000 ($8,000 to show, $8,000 to win)
def. Cole Escovedo: $6,000

Mike Pierce: $36,000 ($18,000 to show, $18,000 to win)
def. Paul Bradley: $8,000

Aaron Rosa: $12,000 ($6,000 to show, $6,000 to win)
def. Matt Lucas: $6,000

How on earth does a defending champion get less than the challenger (less known at that) to show up?

Poor management skills. He signed the contract, also Junior has a gigantic following in Brazil, there's probably huge amounts of hidden money flowing in for the UFC from that.

hereeee we go again...

Champs get paid PPV bonus, and even though this wasn't a PPV, Dana said they will get paid like it would be a PPV. Thus, Cain and JDS made MILLIONS.

stop, really.

People really need to educate themselves on UFC pay structure because it seems like this topic literally comes up every UFC event.

Noone really knows the UFC pay structure except those involved, so it's impossible to educate yourself. We can only speculate on ppv % and other bonuses they may be getting.

Atras just stated JDS got more base pay which didn't seem right, no need to over react.

All that is shown above is the purse amount. That does not indicate how much any fighter actually made for that night of fighting!

It does not show any other money that may or may not be included in the fighters contract (IE signing bonuses, PPV cuts, ratings bonuses, performance bonuses... the list goes on)

Keep in mind this is the 'reported salary' and it is understood now that fighters in the UFC get paid more than what is 'reported'.

Not sure if I agree with Dana's way's of paying fighters than adding little 'wink, wink' statements in the media. He's doing something like the owner of Studio 54 and attracting too much attention doing it. Just announce what the fighter's make and if a reporter ask's about it say 'no comment'. Most, if not all fighters never truly reveal how much the UFC pay's them under the table, especially big star's, under the 'bonus structure'.

Studio 54 didn't have sponsors (i.e. businesses, i.e. lobyists) and pump 10's of millions of dollars into cities economies.
