Jon Fitch: $90,000 (includes $45,000 win bonus) def. Paulo Thiago: $8,000
Dan Henderson: $250,000 ($150,000 win bonus) def. Michael Bisping: $150,000
Yoshihiro Akiyama: $60,000 ($20,000 win bonus) def. Alan Belcher: $19,000
Mark Coleman: $100,000 ($50,000 win bonus) def. Stephan Bonnar: $25,000
Jim Miller: $22,000 ($11,000 win bonus) def. Mac Danzig: $20,000
Jon Jones: $18,000 ($9,000 win bonus) def. Jake O'Brien: $13,000
Dong Hyun Kim: $58,000 ($29,000 win bonus) def. T.J. Grant: $5,000
Tom Lawlor: $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus) def. C.B. Dollaway: $14,000
Shannon Gugerty: $10,000 ($5,000 win bonus) def. Matt Grice: $7,000


Why was Frank Mir only paid 45,000? Obviously he probably got a cut of the PPV, but he only got 5k more than Akiyama's original salary?

?
It's not like he's a former champ...err wait...umm.. Lol

My guess is it would have cut into (at the time) DFW's million dollar gambling nights in Vegas

It was considered a stacked card then, too. I was there live. It was amazing. They had it at the Mandalay Bay, but they had to rent the MGM Grand Garden Arena just for overflow and tickets to get in THERE were $60 a piece.
The UFC made MASSIVE bank on that card, and deserved it. That card was amazing.
