01-Cain-Velasquez-UFC-155-weighThe UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2 fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez successfully defended his belt with a first-round finish of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, while his next challenger, Junior dos Santos, stopped Mark Hunt in the third round of their co-main event bout.

UFC 160 took place Saturday, May 25, at the 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.

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.
