    Gracie made 400,000 and Hughes made 110,000 at UFC 60. They also get a bonus based on how many pay per view buys there are.

    Liddell made 250,000 and Coutoure made 125,000 in there third fight against each other

    Franklin only made 34,000 for his fight against Louisaou. it just depends on their contracts

    It wasn't the first time the fighters got a cut of the PPV. Randy and Chuck also got a cut of the UFC 57 PPV buyrate. But very few fighters in UFC are getting a cut of the PPV. I would guess that Randy, Chuck, Shamrock, Tito and Gracie are the only ones so far.

    I know Gracie will make over a million but i dont think Hughes will. Gracie was garuteed $400,000 plus his PPV share. Hughes was garuteed $110,000 (i think) plus his PPV share. Its interesting to note that this is the first time the UFC has shared PPV revenue with the fighters. Hopfully this will become a tread with the top names bc they deservie it. Its also interesting to note that some fighters only make $2,000 to show and $2,000 to win. Which is not much at all considering how much time it takes to prepair for a fight.
