UFC 145 Salaries released

With the passing of UFC 145 comes the released salary amount for the fighters on the card. Here’s what’s been reported by the Atlanta Athletics Commission, not accounting bonuses that are handed out by the UFC behind the scenes.

Jon Jones is obviously the big winner, bringing in $400,000 for his win over Rashad Evans. According to the details, Jones was set to make that, regardless of a loss. This marks a very different pay structure, as most fighters receive a ‘win bonus’ as outlined in their contract. Another surprising payout is Brendan Schaub only taking home $14,000 for his seventh fight in the octagon, while newcomer Chad Griggs made $27,000 in his quick loss. The details may however stem from his original Strikeforce contract carrying over. Here is the full salary information for UFC 145.
