UFC 148 may go down as one of the biggest cards of 2012 and the salaries for the mega-event certainly reflect that as well.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission released the salary information for the fighter at UFC 148 on Monday with co-main event fighter Forrest Griffin raking in the biggest payday.

Griffin topped the list with a $275,000 paycheck while his opponent Tito Ortiz, who retired following UFC 148, came in with a $250,000 payday.

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva came in just behind that with a $200,000 payday.

Just a reminder that these figures do not reflect unreported post fight bonuses or pay-per-view bonuses that some fighters earn
