The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Tuesday released the UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber fighter salary information.
UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz defended his belt with a unanimous decision victory over Urijah Faber, Chris Leben upset Wanderlei Silva, and Tito Ortiz kept his career intact with a submission victory over upstart Ryan Bader.
UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber took place Saturday, July 2, at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.
