6,000 for Herring

18,000 For Obrien



I think Mirko is the second highest paid ufc fighter ever at 350,000 . the only one higher I can think of is Royce Gracie at 400,000

sanchez should have made so much more for accepting that fight. it was like suicide.



He did Get 30k which was a lot considering he had only 1 fight previous in the UFC and is really a unknown fighter.

$30,000 is alot for a 2nd UFC fight, prolly cause they needed an undefeated fighter to show the casual fan that Crocop is legit.

I'd take 30 grand to run around the ring for 5 minutes or shorter depending on when cro cop decides to finish me.

Quite the spread in paychecks. $350k to $3k. I wonder if Rampages check was a carry over salary from WFA or if it was set by the UFC. Crocops check is alot but from the "flat fee" it sounds like he might be missing out on the PPV share. Will that be the same when he is champ? Eitherway $350k is a good slice for 15min work.

Looks like the UFC is breaking out the paychecks. The next couple years will be interesting if they keep the salaries heading in this direction.

It is quite the amount of money. I think they offered him so much cuz they knew he wouldnt win. Eddie continually talked about how it was a win win situation for him. I dont see how getting into the cage and either getting KO'd by CC in round 1 or gettin KO'd by CC in round 2 is a win win.

Fight bonuses, sponsor money, and PPV revenue don't have to be reported to the state..

I think sanchez got way too much for that fight. 30G for running away for 4.5 minutes seems like way too much.

That wasnt a flat fee either. He woulda got a win bonus if he had Beat Cro Cop. Since Dana knew that was unlikely he probably offered him the 30k.

Remember...the figures you get from mmaweekly.com or elsewhere are just what UFC is obligated to report. Believe that, for example, Liddell gets more than the paltry $250K reported on the net. Headliners get a piece of the gate. MSNBC in their coverage of MMA called "Warrior Nation" reported that Liddell and Ortiz got over $1 million each for the 12/30 fight. I believe it. Still a fraction of those big-time boxer paydays, but we are certainly getting there.
