    UFC fight night 4 - 4k to show, 4k to win = 8k
    UFC fight night 5 - 8k to show, 8k to win = 16k
    UFC 64 - 10k to show, 10k to win = 20k
    UFC 68 - 14k to show, 14k to win = 28k
    UFC fight night 10 - 18k to show, 18k to win = 36k
    UFC 76 - 22k to show, 22k to win = 44k
    UFC 82 - 30k to show, 30k to win = 60k
    UFC 87 - 34k to show = 34k
    UFC 94 - 34k to show, 34k to win = 68k
    UFC 100 - 45k to show, 45k to win = 90k
    UFC 107 - 50k to show, 50k to win = 100k
    UFC 111 - 55k to show, 55k to win = 110k

    UFC 153 - 60k to show, 60k to win = 120k
    UFC 156 - 66k to show = 66k

    + 130k for 2 fight of the night, + 302k discretionary

    Total = 1.48 million for 18 fights over 8 years.

    Pretty shitty in my opinion considering he was number 2 in the world for like 6 years

    That's not bad because you can get sponsors and endorsements and stuff like that. The UFC gave him exposure to make more money!

    Oh, and that's not even sponsor pay, or any extras like making gym appearances and seminars.

    Sherdog needs to quit obsessively bitching about what a fighter gets paid.

    Sucks for him, but if he finished fights he would be paid more.

    He also made sponsor money on all those fights..

    And he never was a draw or a champion.. You need to be a champ in the UFC to make the bank..

    If Fitch had those WWEsque qualities he would have got paid more

    Sonnen is just a loud mouth version of Fitch

    I came to post about exposure as well. While he didn't make as much coin as a top 5 finisher he did garner a decent record that likely proved well for him at another bargining table outside the UFC promotion.
