UFC 141 Fighter Salaries

Sometimes when you lose you really win. Take Brock for example, he gets $400,000 for about 3 mins of work and he was the loser. When you draw big, you get paid big. It’s pretty simple math. Brock’s total earnings for UFC 141 doesn’t even take into consideration his sponsorships and points he gets off this PPV. He is easily walking away from this fight with no less than a $1 million. Alistair could also be in the millionaire club after his $2 per pay per view buy stipulation. That’s the thing about Brock, he’ll make you famous…and rich. Just ask Cain, Carwin, Mir and now Alistair.

The Cowboy also got picked apart and still ended up taking over $100k. He earned 35k for the fight a nice 75k for fight of the night. Remember when reading the following salaries that the amount shown does not reflect endorsements or behind the scenes bonus that are hardly mentioned.
