UFC 116 Full Card Payouts

By Sherdog.com Staff Jul 6, 2010
Before UFC 116 last Saturday in Las Vegas, the Nevada State Athletic Commission released the disclosed salaries for the main event, which showed that Brock Lesnar would be making 10 times more than opponent Shane Carwin according to the figures reported to the commission.

Lesnar then added to his income by scoring a $75,000 Submission of the Night bonus for tapping Carwin in the second round with an arm-triangle choke. The UFC heavyweight champion will also get a lucrative percentage of the event’s pay-per-view revenue.

The NSAC released the payouts for the entire card Tuesday. The numbers are disclosed pay only and do not include additional income such as sponsorships or percentages of other revenue.
