Main-event winner Benson Henderson and co-main-event loser Frank Mir were the top earners at Saturday's UFC on FOX 7 event and each earned $200,000.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) obtained the list of disclosed paydays from the California State Athletic Commission.

The event took place at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif. The main card, which saw lightweight champion Henderson earn a split-decision victory over Gilbert Melendez ($175,000), aired on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.
The total disclosed payroll for the April 20 event was $1,318,000...

Wow, I'm shock at Nate Diaz earning. I would figure a guy who has been in the UFC for 6 years now would earned more than just $15,000 as based pay.

Btw I think Benson Earning is not longer $200,000. SInce he has proposal to his girlfriend, she now owns half of at earning

Josh Thompson getting that guaranteed money.


Nate must have gotten all his money in signing bonuses? 15k to show is his lowest reported paycheck ever.


Good to see Bendo got a raise. He was at 39/39 last time.

Mir 200k to show is not bad money at all.

Yeah Diaz making 'Dillashaw' money does not make sense at all, he's headlined two fox cards and is an ultimate fighter winner...whether its stipulated in his contract or this is structured this way we don't know. So if we hear Nate come out slamming the UFC or fighting in mma nowadays like his brother, we have to question it immediately because he signed on the dotted line and I too, believe he's had bigger paydays as far as base pay, in the past. On top of 10 fotn bonuses. I still don't agree with him being at that scale.

Melendez might have had a similar deal to Thompson. Much less dependent on winning to get the money. Wouldn't be surprised if Melendez had a 175k/25k deal.
