Fortunes changed for five at UFC 162
When Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche headlined UFC 157 on Feb. 23, the feeling in the building going in is that we were going to see one of the most historically significant nights in MMA history. The company didn’t miss a beat, promoting the show as "History in the making." Going into UFC 162, there was no such feeling, even though all of Anderson Silva’s records were on the line against an opponent that figured to have the best shot of beating him of anyone he had faced. Chris Weidman winning the title would have been big news under any circumstances. But the nature of those circumstances made it even bigger. It’s very rare when a second-round knockout leaves the public unconvinced over who is really the better fighter...

It pays to be the champ. Or at least, it used to. New UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman earned a disclosed payday of $48,000 for his weekend win over Anderson Silva. The ex-champ, meanwhile, earned $600,000. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today obtained the list of disclosed fight purses from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Silva, meanwhile, would have earned an additional $200,000 as a win bonus. The full list of disclosed UFC 162 paydays included:
Even in defeat, ex-UFC champ Anderson Silva still holds all the card
The way it normally works in the fight business, the person who gets knocked out shows up at the press conference later, trying to convince the promoter, the media and the fans that he deserves a rematch. Not the other way around. But then, there was nothing normal about the main event of UFC 162 in Las Vegas, so why should the immediate aftermath be different?
