Mike Pyle earned the biggest payday at UFC on FX 3, earning $66,000 for his efforts in defeating Josh Neer in their welterweight scrap on Friday night.

Other top earners from the event, which was held at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., were Demetrious Johnson ($40,000) and Mike Pierce ($40,000). The payout figures were released by the Florida Boxing Commission on Tuesday.

Johnson defeated Ian McCall ($9,000) via unanimous decision in the UFC on FX 3 main event. The bout was a rematch of their March meeting in Australia, which resulted in a controversial majority draw. Johnson moves on to face Joseph Benavidez for the promotion’s vacant flyweight title at a date to be determined. In the co-main event, Erick Silva ($16,000) submitted Charlie Brenneman ($18,000) via rear-naked choke at 4:09 of the opening round.

Among other main card competitors, Eddie Wineland earned $20,000 for his entertaining victory over Scott Jorgensen ($20,500), while Neer banked $14,000 in defeat against Pyle.

The disclosed purses reported by state athletic commissions do not include any performance-based or discretionary bonuses that may be awarded to a fighter by the promotion. Additionally, the reported figures do not reflect any deductions made by the commission for taxes, insurance, etc., and do not include any sponsorship money that a fighter may acquire for their performance.
