UFC 167 Salaries: GSP, Evans and Lawler Lead Way

Georges St. Pierre

Georges St. Pierre may have had a tough night at UFC 167, but the welterweight champion, not surprisingly, led all competitors in terms of earnings for the November 16th card.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the payroll for Saturday’s event, and according to their figures, St. Pierre collected $400,000 for his split decision win over Johny Hendricks. Mr. “Bigg Rigg”, meanwhile, earned $50K for his impressive performance. Of course, these numbers do not include any additional money the two earned in terms of sponsorships or pay-per-view dividends.

The card’s second highest earner was reportedly Rashad Evans, as the former light-heavyweight champ made $250,000 for his first round stoppage victory over Chael Sonnen. Evans’ earning included a win bonus of $125,000. Sonnen collected $100,000 for his efforts.

Another of the night’s top earners was Robbie Lawler, as the punishing slugger made $166,000 (including an $83K win bonus) for his split decision victory over fellow welterweight contender Rory MacDonald. The latter made 50 grand for his performance.

So, here is the complete payroll that was disclosed to the NSAC by the UFC (as reported by MMA Junkie.com). As noted above, the numbers do not reflect any additional pay a fighter may have earned, like performance bonuses etc. UFC 167 was hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
