Georges St PierreNot surprisingly, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre topped the list of the UFC 167 fighter salaries released by the Nevada State Athletic Commission to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

His fight with Johny Hendricks came down to controversial split decision, but St-Pierre retained his championship after a hard-fought five rounds.

UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks took place Saturday, Nov. 16, 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.
