I am very surpised, everyone got paid a fair amount in my eyes.
Good job UFC!
I found it weird that Nate Diaz's got paid so much for his second fight. Props to him for winning that contract.

Luke Cummo got $32,000? Wow...I don't think he deserved that much. Nate Diaz was way overpaid too, he got paid more then KenFlo. Fighter salaries never make much sense...

looks like Cummo knows how talk business I know some guys will fight for nothing just to be at the "big show" but this is the good side of TUF, cus he can make big bucks at smaller shows now since he's a draw now that everyone has seen him on tv.

I hope Martin enjoyed performing that $12,000 taunt that cost him his win bonus.

I still can't believe he did that....

Nate won TUF so he got that contract; That is how he got paid so much

has nothing to do with his managment team really.

they have a pay scale based on how many times you have fought and your win/loss and streak in those fights. hes had a few fights and has done ok.

hes doing it for himself by not sucking shit.
