I could be wrong but I seem to remember seeing former TUF members making anywhere as low as 3-5k. So now they're making almost double that amount.

With the bonuses, Junie and Anthony Johnson made the most money, around 40k which is pretty good for Junie as it was his first figtht. I know that most of the fights are by contract but it makes me mad that Johnson wouldve made less than Goveria if he didnt score that KO
