    Anderson and Chael both made multi millions for this fight.... They got a fat ppv cut. Im interested to see the PPV buy #'s.

    GSP allegedly pulls in over 4-5 mil per fight and it was estimated that Anderson was getting 7mil+ for this fight.

    GSP makes more per fight than Anderson, but for this fight Anderson probably made more than GSP ever had for a single fight...

    It is actually funny how we give so much importance about the salary of a fighter, as if somehow it affects us.

    The guy played a role major role in helping the ufc emerge to what it is today. He fights whoever the ufc puts in front including being in Brazil when his wife is about to go into labour. He may not win them all but wins more then he loses and outside of the Jardine loss he's lost to top guys only. Done alot away from the ring to help build the sport as well.

    So many people complain about fighters not making enough and you are complaining about a fighter making to much.

    You can't be for real.....you aren't are you? You've never heard of pay per view bonuses?

    He got 500k for rocking that Burger King logo on his tights. See his banner? Nothing but Nike swooshes and Whoppers...big BUCKS.

    Forrest Griffin that is nobody really special gets much more money. Cung Le who is not a Top 5 fighter or anything like that gets paid a lot.
    Yes, but Silva's PPV cut must dwarf what Forrest makes. Plus, I wouldnt be surprised if Silva gets locker room bonuses.

    Le's salary is due to what SF/Showtime was paying him. I guess he maintains the same salary. Plus, Cung Le is a good commodity to have because he can garner attention in the Asian markets such as China, Japan, and Philipines if they every go there.
