Tito Ortiz or fellow UFC 148 co-headliner Forrest Griffin will be the top earner at Saturday's event.

Ortiz is set to take home a flat $250,000 in his retirement fight. Rubber-match opponent Forrest Griffin, meanwhile, earns $125,000 to show and will earn an extra $150,000 as a win bonus if victorious.

MMAjunkie.com today confirmed the payouts with Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer.

Nice little chunk of change for both fighters.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Word from some MMA media is that Anderson will be paid $7,000,000 by the UFC.

Win, lose or draw.....

Andee gets way more in locker room bonuses, and ppv share. Same thing like actors who will get points for movies profits, I think Depp does that with he Pirate movies and Cruise with MI's.
