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.

Rashad, Rampage, Bisping, Nog and Sanchez made some tidy cash. You have all the other payments that we don't get to hear about too, the payments from the UFC and their sponsors. Tidy cash for those guys. Huge win bonus for Rashad!

Man for a TUF winner Bisping gets paid a substantial sum. Interesting to see Rampage and Rashad get a quarter mil each. Rampage should get slightly more or Rashad slightly less. More people pay to watch Rampage not the other way around. Had Rashad lost his stock would have gone downhill tremendously. The loss for Rampage is irrelevant, peeps will still want to see him knock fighters out.

I hear Ricardo Arona is joing the UFC ranks soon.

Rampage vs

- Machida
- Arona
- rematch Griffin
- Lil Nog
- Jon Jones
- Anderson Silva

Its funny how the top guys got less than half a mil while Floyd Mayweather made 40 million dollars against Shane Mosley. It's sad to know that PBF made 80X more money than Rashad. I hope the UFC gets to a point in the near future when they start paying their guys a bit better. Even though its a growing sport and all, its still a shame for a professional athlete to be getting paid 5000$ for a fight when they only have about 4 fights a year.

Here's the info with salaries for main event fighters Quinton Jackson and Rashad Evans included. Pretty nice salaries, befitting two former champs who are still very much in the title mix:

All I know is Dana and the Fertittas will be able to rake in a ton of dough in the near future. If the UFC keeps growing, they'll get to bump the salaries as they feel, while controling the capitol.

How do they work out who gets what, the difference in pay between some opponents was ridiculous, e.g.

Bisping gets 175,000 basic pay, and Miller who is co-main eventing only gets 15,000 that's messed up.

Diego gets 50k and Hathaway who is undefeated to date not even half that at 11,000

The worst by far would have been lil Nog vs Brillz,had he not recieved a bonus.
The guy risked it all against a legend in what would have probably been his one and only fight if he got ko'd, and nearly/should have pulled off a massive upset, and got repaid for his efforts with chump change.

These dudes have contracts that say how much they are going to get payed. If they dont like it, no one if forcing them to sign. Brilz was lucky to be on the main card of this event, up until this point nobody really knew about him or cared to know. People were not dishing out fortyfive dollars to watch this ppv to see Jason Brilz. The dudes that put ass's in seats get payed well.

i love brilz got almost triple his pay for that one performance... that will go a long way in his training for his next fight, especially since he got out of the fight without any major damage.

i hope his contract was up so he can renegotiate now!

Pay is contract based, not based on how the fight went. That's why a guy under a contract might get a big fight, like Brilz, but will still get low pay.

Once they get a few wins, I imagine they can either renegotiate their contract before or after it ends.

Bisping has a huge following here in the UK where the UFC has a TV deal with ESPN, so he does bring with in a lot of viewers.
