Anderson Silva UFC 126The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Monday released the UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman fighter salaries to MMAWeekly.com.

Chris Weidman upset Anderson Silva at UFC 162, putting an end to the longest UFC middleweight championship reign in the promotion’s history, and defeating the man widely considered the greatest fighter of all time.

UFC 162 took place Saturday, July 6, 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.
