UFC 199 Salaries Revealed: Henderson, Cruz, Bisping Make Serious Bank
The salaries have been revealed for UFC 199, and with a total disclosed payroll of $2,689,000 for the entire event, it’s clear that some of these fighters made serious bank.
Of course, there are several factors to take into account, such as the fact that these payout numbers exclude insurance, licensing and tax deductions, as well as sponsorship money, and bonuses handed out by the UFC brass. For example, Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson each received a $50,000 bonus for the shared Performance of the Night title, while Polo Reyes and “Maestro” Dong Hyun Kim each earned a bonus for Fight of the Night. But these are base salaries for each of the fighters, winners and losers both. It’s a pretty interesting document, and well-worth checking out for an idea of how fighters are paid in MMA.
