    Really quick question, looking at the UFC 100 payouts below.

    Brock Lesnar: $400,000 (no win bonus) def. Frank Mir: $45,000
    Georges St-Pierre: $400,000 ($200,000 win bonus) def. Thiago Alves: $60,000
    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?

    Bisping, Henderson, Thiago Alves, Coleman all got paid more than Mir and he was headlining the PPV? Any specific reason for this?

    Mir is probably 45/45. So less guaranteed and higher possible pay. Mir was very inconsistent and that is why most likely.

    Yep. Lesnar and GSP are the 2 biggest PPV stars of all time, it would never have gotten nearly the same PPV buys if just 1 of them was fighting.

    Good question. Goes to show a popular fighter like Brock can earn as much money as one of the greatest fighters of all time. Damn shame.

    This card was prior to the UFC going Boxings route and diluting cards. Sad tbh

    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.
