The Ultimate Fighter Season Seven Finale Fighter Payouts (Update)

MoneyThe NSAC has released the fighter payouts for the TUF 7 Finale. Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional “locker room” bonuses or sponsorship money, which in many cases exceeds a fighter’s base pay. These numbers also do not account for taxes, insurance, and license fees.

Diego Sanchez was the night’s big winner taking home $70,000 for his win over Luigi Fioravanti. Dustin Hazelett also did well for himself pocketing a total of $40,000 in bonus money for Submission and Fight of the Night honors. It is still unclear on whether or not Tim Credeur and Cale Yarbrough received their base pay since their fight was canceled. We’ll keep you updated.

[UPDATE 6/23/08 5:42PM ET] – Tim Credeur and Cale Yarbrough did receive their base pay of $8,000 each.
