benson-henderson-family.jpgMain-event winner Benson Henderson and co-main-event loser Frank Mir were the top earners at Saturday’s UFC on FOX 7 event and each earned $200,000.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) obtained the list of disclosed paydays from the California State Athletic Commission.

The event took place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The main card, which saw lightweight champion Henderson earn a split-decision victory over Gilbert Melendez ($175,000), aired on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.

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.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $50,000 UFC on FOX 7 bonuses to Romero and Thomson (dual “KO of the Night” winners), and Brown and Mein (“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.
