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.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I would pay Anderson more than those two or some of the other fighters.

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.
