SACRAMENTO – Demetrious Johnson ($175,000) and Urijah Faber ($200,000) were the top earners at Saturday’s UFC on FOX 9 event.

MMAjunkie obtained the list of official disclosed paydays from the California State Athletic Commission.

UFC on FOX 9 took place at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento. The main card aired on FOX following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and MMAjunkie.

The total disclosed payroll for the Dec. 14 event was $1,007,000.

The full UFC on FOX 9 salaries included:

Alptekin Ozkilic: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)
vs. Darren Uyenoyama: $12,000

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.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $50,000 UFC on FOX 9 bonuses to Demetrious Johnson (“KO of the Night”), Urijah Faber (“Submission of the Night”), and Edson Barboza and Danny Castillo (“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.
