The Nevada Athletic Commission has released the disclosed salaries for all of the contestants who competed in Saturday’s “UFC 195: Lawler vs. Condit” event.
Robbie Lawler (pictured) was the night’s biggest winner in more ways than one. Not only did “Ruthless” take a highly controversial split decision win over Carlos Condit to retain his welterweight title, but he was the show’s highest earner with a flat $500,000 salary.
Condit made $315,000, but could have earned another $115k had he won.
Former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski scored $250,000 for getting knocked out by Stipe Miocic in just 54 seconds. Miocic pocketed $120,000, with half coming via win bonus.
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 sponsorship money paid by Reebok or any bonuses from the UFC. These royalties can include pay-per-view commissions, 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.
