UFC 100 fighters salaries

    ("And I'll be taking your lunch money every morning, got it geek?")
    The UFC paid out $2,190,000 in disclosed salaries and bonuses for Saturday's UFC 100 show, with the victorious Brock Lesnar, Georges St. Pierre, and Dan Henderson taking home just over half of the total. Lesnar and St. Pierre also earn a percentage of the pay-per-view revenue, which isn't reflected in the list below; according to MMA Junkie, Lesnar will make about $3 million from the fight even before the majority of his sponsorship money is tallied. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. The salary figures are below:
    - Brock Lesnar: $400,000 (no win bonus)
    - Georges St. Pierre: $400,000 (includes $200,000 win bonus)
    - Dan Henderson: $350,000 (includes $150,000 win bonus, $100,000 Knockout of the Night bonus)
    - Yoshihiro Akiyama: $160,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus, $100,000 Fight of the Night Bonus)
    - Michael Bisping: $150,000
    - Alan Belcher: $119,000 (includes $100,000 Fight of the Night Bonus)
    - Tom Lawlor: $116,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus, $100,000 Submission of the Night bonus)
    - Mark Coleman: $100,000 (includes $50,000 win bonus)
    - Jon Fitch: $90,000 (includes $45,000 win bonus)
    - Thiago Alves: $60,000
    - Dong Hyun Kim: $58,000 (includes $29,000 win bonus)
    - Frank Mir: $45,000
    - Stephan Bonnar: $25,000
    - Jim Miller: $22,000 (includes $11,000 win bonus)
    - Mac Danzig: $20,000
    - Jon Jones: $18,000 (includes $9,000 win bonus)
    - C.B. Dollaway: $14,000
    - Jake O'Brien: $13,000
    - Shannon Gugerty: $10,000 (includes $5,000 win bonus)
    - Paulo Thiago: $8,000
    - Matt Grice: $7,000
    - T.J. Grant: $5,000
    Underpaid: Frank Mir. $45,000 for an interim belt holder, former champion, and eight-year UFC veteran? It goes to show what Mir is really worth to the UFC, when young stars like Thiago Alves and Michael Bisping are out-earning him. Of course, Jon Jones also needs a big bump in pay after completing his first three UFC fights in memorable fashion.

    Overpaid: Michael Bisping. U.K. poster boy or not, the dude's biggest win leading up to UFC 100 was over Chris Leben, and he wasn't even fighting for a title on Saturday. I wonder if the UFC will ask him to take a pay cut now that his A-list salary looks a little inflated. Meanwhile, the poster boy for the Asian market, Yoshihiro Akiyama, only got $40,000 to show. Maybe Bisping and Akiyama should square off next to determine who deserves what.

    Thanks for the update on who made what for this fight. Bisping gets paid so well because the UFC wants to expand into Europe. Oh well what can we do, we all know that each of us will be watching the UFC on pay per view. :rolleyes:
