UFC 88 ‘Breakthrough’ Fighter Payouts

MoneyThe GAEC has released the fighter payouts for UFC 88 “Breakthrough.” 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.

Not surprisingly, Chuck Liddell was by far and away the night’s big money winner earning $500k to get knocked out cold. Rashad Evans, Dan Henderson, and Rich Franklin did well for themselves taking home $120k, $250k, and $100k, respectively.
