    Bisping has been around a lot longer, not to mention how much of an asset he is to the UFC UK market. He's probably generated more money for the UFC in those markets than JJ and Chael have thus far in their UFC careers.

    But you gotta think this must sting for Jones, who probably is wondering how does he get outpaid by a guy who never made it to a title fight and is is hated more than he is for being a bigger douchebag.

    UFC Career Fighter Earnings

    Factoring in UFC 159 Bisping has earned almost as much as GSP & Ortiz career wise... Who are all only a few thousand behind Chuck..

    These are just commission reported pay. They don't include PPV buy "bonuses", or other backstage pay that fighters get. There is no way in f***ing hell Bisping made more money that Jones or Sonnen. That is a fact (not one that I can back up by evidence, only with realistic information).

    Reported pay, reported for legal reasons to the local athletic commission, is exactly that, reported. It's guaranteed money for a fight, and certain win bonuses. then the fan is able to add up the Fight of the Night, Submission of the Night, and KO of the night win bonuses. Then there is the contract pay, mainly a percentage of the PPV buys. On top of that, there are the bonuses that the UFC decides to give out themselves, independently, that they have no obligation to acknowledge.

    Don't feel bad for Jones. He appeals to the mainstream, so he has more advertisement revenue than any other MMA athlete.
