The NSAC has released the fighter payouts for UFC 106. 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.
Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin tied for the biggest paydays at UFC 106. Each earned a disclosed $250,000 for their rematch, though it should be noted that Tito wouldn’t have earned a win bonus. Josh Koscheck wasn’t far behind with his submission and fight of the night bonuses. He netted himself a hefty $246,000 pay check, which should leave little question why he wants to fight every month. Antonio Rogeria Nogueira rounded out the six-figure club earning himself a cool $100,000 plus an extra $70,000 bonus for knocking out Luiz Cane.
