The NSAC has released the fighter salaries for UFC 130. Keep in mind, these figures represent the base contracted pay the fighter receives from the promotion. These figures do not include any additional undisclosed discretionary bonuses, pay-per-view revenue sharing 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.
Rampage Jackson and Frank Mir led the pack this event with $250,000 each. Gleison Tibau was third in line with $120,000 after his $70k bonus. Brian Stann and Jorge Santiago also broke six figures with their Fight of the Night bonuses.
