Main card competitors Aaron Simpson [pictured], Chris Weidman and Mark Munoz took home the largest disclosed paydays from UFC on Fuel TV 4, earning $46,000, $44,000 and $42,000, respectively.

The California State Athletic Commission emailed the figures to Sherdog.com on Thursday. UFC on Fuel TV 4 took place Wednesday at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., and was headlined by a middleweight duel between Munoz and Weidman. The New Yorker emerged victorious in the main event after clipping “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” with a sharp counter elbow that led to a brutal barrage of ground-and-pound in the second frame.

Also of note, James Te Huna earned $28,000 for his co-main event victory over durable ex-heavyweight Joey Beltran, who walked away with $15,000 in defeat. Additionally, undercard competitor Rafael dos Anjos picked up $40,000 for his well-rounded performance against Anthony Njokuani ($14,000), while Rafael Assuncao pocketed $34,000 for his technical knockout of Issei Tamura ($8,000). The total disclosed payroll for the event was $446,000.

Note: 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 or pay-per-view percentages that a fighter may acquire for their performance.
