The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale fighter salaries were released to MMAWeekly.com on Monday by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

The main event at Friday’s event featured Martin Kampmann continuing his assencion towards title contention by finishing Jake Ellenberger in the second round.

Michael Chiesa became The Ultimate Fighter with his submission of Al Iaquinta in the fifteenth season finale of the venerable reality series.

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.

So the 16,000 dollars is separate from the"six-figure" contract? Or did Uncle Dana hold out until he shaved?

The six figures spans 3 years and I believe 9 fights.

imo 9 fights is far too many to be on a TUF contract. Let's say he goes 7-0 in his next 7 fights and is now a co-main fighter or a main event fighter on a Fox/FX/Fuel card...does $16k base pay seem appropriate? 7 fights imo is where it should be at

I'm sure at that point it'd get restructured. The UFC, for the most part, take care of their guys. If not in the contract, discretionary bonuses will do.
