Rashad Evans vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at the UFC 156 weigh-insThe UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Jose Aldo successfully defended his UFC featherweight title in the main event on Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, but it was Rashad Evans, in a losing effort, that topped the payroll, followed closely by Alistair Overeem.

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.

Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters’ salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.
