Earlier today, the Vancouver Athletic Commission released the official fighter salaries for “UFC 115: Liddell vs. Franklin,” which took place on June 12th at GM Place in Canada.
According to MMAJunkie, the UFC shelled out $1.285 million to pay all 22 fighters who competed in the event.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell topped the list earning $500,000, in what was probably his last Octagon fight. Although Liddell’s physique looked the part, his chin didn’t, as he suffered his third straight knockout loss.
