    Barnett is still on his Strikeforce contract. Lebens make sense depending on when he signed it. He is on a four fight losing streak so it probably before his streak started.

    I'm sure between co-main eventing and being one of the coaches for TUF Meisha made out pretty good with the bonus money that wasn't reported.

    Which considering she was coming into the match after losing her previous match and being 1-2 in in the last two years she made out pretty good either way.

    Damn Weidmans move of not negotiating hie new contract until after the first Silva fight paid off. Good for him

    He'll have to renegotiate after he becomes the champ.

    Mac you're back!!


    PS Hall lost TUF so he is still on that low TUF loser contract, he knew when he signed that he wasn't going to make all that much for a while.

    UFC 168 salaries: Weidman, Silva’s paydays lead $1.9 million disclosed payroll

    http://mmajunkie.com/2013/12/ufc-168...losed-payroll/

    UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, Anderson Silva and Josh Barnett were the top earners at this past weekend’s UFC 168 event.

    MMAjunkie today obtained the list of disclosed paydays from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which oversaw the Dec. 28 pay-per-view event at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The total disclosed payroll for the event was $1,872,000.

    Silva, who suffered a horrific leg break in a headlining loss, earned a base pay of $600,000, and he would have earned an additional $200,000 with a victory. Weidman ranked behind him with $400,000, of which $200,000 was a win bonus. Barnett, meanwhile, earned a flat rate of $170,000 in a knockout loss to Travis Browne, who earned $56,000.

    The full list of disclosed paydays included:

    Champ Chris Weidman: $400,000 (includes $200,000 win bonus)
    def. Anderson Silva: $600,000

    Champ Ronda Rousey: $100,000 (includes $50,000 win bonus)
    def. Miesha Tate: $28,000

    Travis Browne: $56,000 (includes $28,000 win bonus)
    def. Josh Barnett: $170,000

    Jim Miller: $92,000 (includes $46,000 win bonus)
    def. Fabricio Camoes: $8,000

    Dustin Poirier: $46,000 (includes $23,000 win bonus)
    def. Diego Brandao: $20,000

    Uriah Hall: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
    def. Chris Leben: $51,000

    Michael Johnson: $36,000 (includes $18,000 win bonus)
    def. Gleison Tibau: $39,000

    Dennis Siver: $66,000 (includes $33,000 win bonus)
    def. Manny Gamburyan: $25,000

    John Howard: $32,000 (includes $16,000 win bonus)
    def. Siyar Bahadurzada: $17,000

    William Macario: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
    def. Bobby Voelker: $12,000

    Robert Peralta: $24,000 (includes $12,000 win bonus)
    def. Estevan Payan: $10,000

    Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter’s income. They also do not include any other “locker room” or special discretionary bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. Additionally, they don’t include any pay-per-view revenue some top fighters receive.

    For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $75,000 UFC 168 bonuses to Browne (“KO of the Night”), Rousey (“Submission of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” for $150,000 total) and Tate (“Fight of the Night”).
