Junior dos Santos UFC 146Junior Dos Santos didn’t walk out of UFC 155 with the heavyweight title, but he did leave with the biggest payday of anybody on the year end card that took place in Las Vegas.

The figures were released on Monday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Dos Santos would likely trade that money for another crack at Cain Velasquez, but either way he walked out of UFC 155 with a hefty $400,000 paycheck for his effort in the fight.
