    Default UFC 175 Fighter Salaries: Chris Weidman Tops the List Just Under Half a Million Dolla

    https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/ufc...2298--mma.html

    UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman cemented his status atop the division at UFC 175 on Saturday night in Las Vegas, when he won a unanimous decision over Lyoto Machida. He was rewarded for his efforts with a $450,000 reported payday, which put him atop the UFC 175 fighter salaries, according to MMAJunkie.com, citing the Nevada Athletic Commission.

    UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continued to build her legacy by knocking out Alexis Davis in just 16 seconds. She, however, was third on the list of publicly disclosed salaries, drawing $120,000 to Machida's $200,000.

    no becasue he wasnt on the PPV he didnt get points. he talked about it with ariel and said basically whenyou have two titles on the line your % of the ppv isnt worth it which is why he asked for the main event on the FS1 part

    I don't think that's true. I've read where Franklin got them, Hughes, Liddell, and lesnar all got them after they were champs. I would imagine Faber would fall into that company.

    I'd say that's not true they were offering Alvarez PPV points before he even had a fight in the UFC just as an example.
