    Default Silva makes 600/200, Weidman 24/24

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-Weidman-2424/

    MMA Junkies' Steven Marrocco tweeted the salaries for several UFC 162 fighters, including the main event's Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman:
    •Anderson Silva banks $600k show and $200k to win at UFC 162, while Weidman gets $24k/24k.
    •Co-mainers: Frankie Edgar ($120k/$120k) and Charles Oliveira ($21k/21K)

    However, these official figures do not represent an accurate assessment of each fighter's income.

    Fighters bear significant costs including training expenses, a percentage to management, a percentage to the trainer, insurance, licenses, and taxes.

    On the income side, in addition to announced salaries. the UFC characteristically gives out undisclosed "locker room" bonuses. Main event fighters often get points on PPV buys. In addition there are publicly announced 'of the Night' bonuses. Sponsorship money can be substantial, although they have dropped markedly over the past couple of years.

    wow...I know rabid fanboys are convinced I hate Anderson, and despite the fact that I'm not, I'm sure this will do nothing to change their mind:

    I simply can't believe Anderson whined soooooo fucking much about a fight he was guaranteed more than half a million dollars for and one where he is so overwhelmingly likely to win. ed soares should be shot in the testicles and left to bleed out on a mound full of bullet ants. he's directly responsible for the pussification of Anderson's psyche.

    I feel your disdain on the Anderson/Ed Soares thing. Anderson's the ventriloquist, Ed Soares is the dummy.

    But consider this, Anderson probably makes as much if not more $$$ from sponsors outside the UFC than the UFC itself (I'm aware that he earns points on the PPV package). All the stalling you get from Ed Soares and Anderson is designed to extend his career, not necessarily to earn more money per fight. At this point Anderson only has to defend the belt once a year, and that nets him endorsements that come pouring in year-round.

    I'm not going to stop you if you want to shoot Ed Soares in the balls, but these guys know exactly what they're doing. It might not be great for the sport, or great for the fans, but it works for them.

    Yeah, if Weidman wins I'd like to think that he'd receive some form of, how you say, extra compensation.

    So does Chris Weidman get a bump in pay as a champ and for the rematch (or as DW has been billing it, the biggest fight in UFC history) or does he get stuck with his current negotiated contract pay?

    Does anyone know if being the champ gets you an automatic pay bump?

    This was the last fight on Weidman's contract, so he should be renegotiating as we speak.
