UFC 145 Jones vs. Evans Fighter Salaries: Jon Jones Tops the Payroll

The main event at Saturday’s event at Philips Arena in Atlanta featured UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones continuing his run through the light heavyweight contenders, with a five-round unanimous decision victory over Rashad Evans.
