The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Saturday’s “UFC 167: St-Pierre vs. Hendricks” event.
As expected, reigning welterweight king Georges St-Pierre (pictured) was the night’s highest earner. GSP scored a flat $400,000 salary for his controversial split decision victory over Johny Hendricks in the show’s featured attraction.
Hendricks, meanwhile, made $50,000.
Both fighters will receive a piece of the pay-per-view pie, but those numbers will not be disclosed. It has been reported St-Pierre can pocket as much as $5 million per PPV event he stars in, so you do the math.
Please keep in mind, the numbers that get reported to the athletic commissions are only of what’s required. These figures do not include deductions for items such as licenses and taxes.
Additionally, they do not contain money paid by sponsors or any bonuses from the UFC. These royalties can include Fight Night bonuses, top secret discretionary bonuses, etc., which can oftentimes represent a substantial portion of a fighter’s total income.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas hosted Saturday’s event.
