UFC 102 fighters salaries released

Posted in UFC 102 Salaries Released on August 31, 2009 by thatmmaguy

I’m pretty sure that the way the salaries work is determined by which salary option the fighters themself pick. For example, some fighters may choose a guaranteed amount with out a win bonus and others may choose a lesser guaranteed amount with the option of ultimately making more money with a win bonus. An example of this would be the main card fight between Randy Couture and Minotauro Nogueira. Minotauro recieved $400,00 plus a win bonus of $150,000 making that a total of $550,000. Randy obviously taking the lesser guaranteed amount and with his lose only recieved $250,000. If Randy were to win although, he would have recieved $750,000. Not a very good idea for a 45 year old man if you ask me but he’s loaded anyway. Here are the salaries…….

– Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira ($400,000 plus $150,000 win bonus) def Randy Couture ( $250,000)

– Thiago Silva ( $58,000 plus $29,000 win bonus) def Keith Jardine ( $55,000)
