UFC 109 ‘Relentless’ Fighter Payouts

MoneyThe NSAC has released the fighter payouts for UFC 109. 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, pay-per-view revenue sharing, 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.

Randy Couture led the pack with $250,000. He didn’t receive a win bonus, but it’s pretty well-known that he receives a cut of the pay-per-view revenue. Matt Serra wasn’t too far behind taking home a total of $210,000 with his win and knockout bonuses.  Also, Chael Sonnen and Nate Marquardt broke into the six-figures with their bonuses.
