cain-velasquez-30.jpgMain-event winner Cain Velasquez ($400,000) and co-main-event victor Junior dos Santos ($240,000) were the top earners at this past weekend’s UFC 160 event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today requested and obtained the list of disclosed paydays from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The total disclosed payroll for the May 25 event was $1,533,000.

UFC 160 took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card, which saw Velasquez defend his heavyweight title with a first-round TKO win over Antonio Silva (who earned $75,000), aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

The full list of UFC 160 payouts included:

Champ Cain Velasquez: $400,000 (no bonus)
def. Antonio Silva: $75,000

Junior dos Santos: $240,000 (includes $120,000 win bonus)
def. Mark Hunt: $160,000

Glover Teixeira: $48,000 (includes $24,000 win bonus)
def. James Te Huna: $30,000

def. Brian Bowles: $19,000

Jeremy Stephens: $48,000 (includes $24,000 win bonus)
def. Estevan Payan: $10,000

Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter’s income. They also do not include any other “locker room” or special discretionary bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. They also do not include portions of the pay-per-view revenue that some top-level fighters receive.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $50,000 UFC 160 bonuses to Grant (“KO of the Night”), Teixeira (“Submission of the Night”), and dos Santos and Hunt (“Fight of the Night”).

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
