The NSAC has released the fighter payouts for UFC 114. 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.
To no one’s surprise, Rashad Evans and Rampage Jackson made bank at UFC 114. Evans cleared the $400k mark while Rampage earned a cool $250k in defeat, and you know they made a lot more than that in pay-per-view bonuses. What may stun you though is how much Michael Bisping is making. Try $190k, and 92% of that is guaranteed. Yeah, not bad for a mid-high level middleweight. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira was right behind him with $185k after all his bonuses.
