Thread: UFC 167 salaries: Georges St-Pierre, Rashad Evans top $1,641,000 payroll

  1. Default UFC 167 salaries: Georges St-Pierre, Rashad Evans top $1,641,000 payroll

    http://mmajunkie.com/2013/11/18/91526/

    Georges St-Pierre and Rashad Evans earned the top disclosed paydays at this past weekend’s UFC 167 event.

    MMAjunkie recently requested and today received the list of show and win purses from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    UFC 167 took place Nov. 16 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena. It aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and Facebook.

    St-Pierre received a guaranteed $400,000 to fight Johny Hendricks, who received a guaranteed $50,000 in his first shot at a UFC title. St-Pierre earned a contentious split-decision win over Hendricks in a bout that UFC President Dana White insisted should have been given to the challenger.

    In the co-main event, former light heavyweight champion Evans earned $250,000 for his win over Chael Sonnen, who banked $100,000 for his efforts.

    The total disclosed payroll for the event was $1,641,000.

    The full list of UFC 167 salaries included:

    Georges St-Pierre: $400,000 (no win bonus)
    def. Johny Hendricks: $50,000

    Rashad Evans: $250,000 (includes $125,000 win bonus)
    def. Chael Sonnen: $100,000

    Robbie Lawler: $166,000 (includes $83,000 win bonus)
    def. Rory MacDonald: $50,000

    Tyron Woodley: $104,000 (includes $52,000 win bonus)
    def. Josh Koscheck: $78,000

    Ali Bagautinov: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
    def. Tim Elliott: $12,000

    Donald Cerrone: $96,000 (includes $48,000 win bonus)
    def. Evan Dunham: $25,000

    Thales Leites: $20,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
    def. Ed Herman: $40,000

    Rick Story: $54,000 (includes $27,000 win bonus)
    def. Brian Ebersole: $18,000

    Erik Perez: $36,000 (includes $18,000 win bonus)
    def. Edwin Figueroa: $12,000

    Jason High: $30,000 (includes $15,000 win bonus)
    def. Anthony Lapsley: $8,000

    Sergio Pettis: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
    def. Will Campuzano: $10,000

    Gian Villante: $38,000 (includes $19,000 win bonus)
    def. Cody Donovan: $8,000

    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 $50,000 UFC 167 bonuses to Woodley (“KO of the Night”), Cerrone (“Submission of the Night”), St-Pierre (“Fight of the Night”) and Hendricks (“Fight of the Night”).

    In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.

    brock lesnar used to get the same $400 k no win bonus as well so i am assuming that is the case.

    also its weird that robbie lawlor made more than 3 times what hendricks did not counting FOTN bonus. villante making $40 k was surprising too it seems like the former striekforce guys make way more money than other fighters of their caliber im asuming its a carry over from the buyout.

    I am sure the fight contract stipulates higher pay than Hendricks' original contract. What is disclosed to the public is not the real amount paid. We all already know this.

    Borderline trolling. Sonnen wanted a way out of that fight and gave up his back, isnt that the type of action the American Gangster would shit talk?

    Imagine the shit that would be coming out of Chael's mouth if it was Wandy who tapped to strikes this weekend and not Sonnen.
