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 discretionary bonuses.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $50,000 UFC 157 bonuses to Lawler ("KO of the Night"), Robertson ("Submission of the Night"), and Bermudez and Grice ("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.

dang..im a fan, but i would cut hendo at that price tag...sorry...he probably gets points too

Stout making bank. Phone Post

Carmouche only making $12k for a title shot seems extremely low on the payscale. Hope Dana/Zuffa took care of her.

Thanks Sergio!

Robbie walked away with 155k. Not bad at all. Phone Post

Good on robbie getting paid!

I am sure Liz was taken care of.

How can you say such a thing when your a fan.

Hendo hardly makes an insane amount and is always entertaining as fuck . Tge fact that the fight bomb was more machida fault then Hendo's. There is a difference between being illusive and just not engaging at all.

Plus he better get points. Cobsidering the Hendo put in he deserves every one of those. Hendo should not get ride of Hendo until he decides to retire. True legend of the game. Phone Post

That's what I thought. Pathetic on UFCs part Phone Post

im not talking from a fan perspective, im talking from a purely economic perspective...to me, someone like a glover is just as exciting as dan and has better prospects at being a champion..he probably makes wayyyyyyy less than dan...that to me is overpayment

And he's earned every penny.

I'm glad Mike Chiesa got a solid 30k being quite fresh out of TUF, really nice guy and I hope his unbeaten streak continues Phone Post
