    UFC on Fox 5 Salaries:

    Though former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua was handed a defeat by Alexander Gustafsson on Saturday night at UFC on Fox 5, “Shogun” nonetheless walked away from the Key Arena in Seattle with the evening’s largest disclosed payday.

    The Washington State Department of Licensing released the salary information on Wednesday. Rua pocketed $175,000 for his three-round unanimous decision defeat at the hands of “The Mauler,” who earned $60,000 for his efforts. Former two-division champion B.J. Penn came in second place, receiving $150,000 for his loss to Canadian prospect Rory MacDonald, who took home $42,000 along with the victory.

    Additionally, UFC lightweight king Benson Henderson made $78,000 for his masterful decision victory over a game Nate Diaz ($50,000) in the evening’s main event, flooring the Cesar Gracie product twice and using his wrestling and athleticism to dominate most of the grappling and scrambles during the exciting, five-round affair.

    Prior to the aforementioned contests, Matt Brown ($54,000) kicked off the evening’s main card broadcast on Fox with an excellent performance against fellow welterweight Mike Swick ($48,000), knocking out “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 1 veteran with a snapping, two-punch combination midway through round two.

    I think Benson is about due for a raise at this point.

    Their just the "disclosed" pays. Id bet anything Ben makes alot more then that from Zuffa. And Im sure his contract will be up'd a good % if hes still the champ come that time.

    Jorgensen made some serious bank for a guy who fought on the Facebook prelims. Although I didnt think he deserved the FOTN bonus, but still nice to see the smaller guys getting some attention. His sub with one second left was very deserving.

    Daron Cruickshank and Abel Trujillo, 2 newcomers shined in their victories. I think UFC were impressed and will be bumping up their pay next fight. Cruickshank had that sick leg kick KO as well, and I wouldnt be surprised if he was given a backstage bonus in the same amount as all the other OTN .

    Being the champ, headliner, the exposure he got from promos on FOX he did, I'm sure Benson made significantly north of just $78,000. His sponsors probably doubled and I'm sure with the great performance he put on, UFC gave him a big check backstage. I wouldnt be surprised if his total pay before expenses, was in the $500,000 range.

    Yeah he probably got more backstage and sponsorships and what not. Just saying he should have a higher base salary at this point he's clearly proved himself at LW.

    I'd say he's a little ahead of a couple of the guys who had higher base pay then him. (namely Nate)
