Its amazes me how little a majority of these guys make per fight. Kinda sad considering the amount of time and prep they put into each fight.

MAIN CARD FIGHTERS:

-Brock Lesnar: $400,000 (no win bonus) def. Shane Carwin: $40,000

-Chris Leben: $86,000 (includes $43,000 win bonus) def. Yoshihiro Akiyama: $45,000

-Chris Lytle: $52,000 (includes $26,000 win bonus) def. Matt Brown: $10,000

-Stephan Bonnar: $50,000 (includes $25,000 win bonus) def. Krzysztof Soszynski: $10,000

-George Sotiropoulos: $24,000 (includes $12,000 win bonus) def. Kurt Pellegrino: $25,000

PRELIMINARY CARD (SPIKE TV) FIGHTERS:

-Brendan Schaub: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus) def. Chris Tuchscherer: $12,000

-Ricardo Romero: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus) def. Seth Petruzelli: $10,000

PRELIMINARY CARD (NON-TELEVISED) FIGHTERS:

-Kendall Grove: $50,000 (includes $25,000 win bonus) def. Goran Reljic: $5,000

-Gerald Harris: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus) def. David Branch: $6,000

-Daniel Roberts: $12,000 (includes $6,000 win bonus) def. Forrest Petz: $6,000

Yea the pay's have always catered to the higher echelon of fighters. But Leben has made out the best. He fought on the TUF finale. He was getting like $37k to fight another $37 to win. So he made $74k. Then 2 weeks later he takes Akiyama fight on short notice and makes another $86k. So $160k in less than 3 weeks for him is pretty damn good.

Ya its good but i can only imagine how much the UFC is banking in these days so it kinda looks like that 900k payroll is a bit light. But really what the fuck do i know...lol

You know they are raking in millions. You figure to order the ppv is $45. Tickets to go see it range from $70-1200. Do the math. They make mad money. But I don't think the fighters are underpaid. I like that you have to earn your money. Not have it given to you due to a huge contract. Just think though, those purses up there was only what the UFC handed out. Not what each fighter made off the sponsors. I bet those numbers go up significantly .
