Vancouver Athletic Commission Release UFC 115 Salaries, Medical Suspensions and Event Revenue Figures


(No wonder Chuck doesn’t want to retire. I’d fight Fedor, Velasquez, Lesnar and Dos Santos in a four-man tag-team match for $500,000)

The Vancouver Athletic Commission released the fighters’ salaries, medical suspensions and revenue figures from UFC 115. According to the report, Chuck Liddell was the highest paid fighter on the card that took in a $4.2 million live gate with a "show" pay of $500,000 USD. Not a bad gold watch for his UFC retirement fight.

Fighters salaries totalled $1.85 million, which accounted for 31% of the live gate of the event. 17,669 attended the second Canadian show put on by the UFC in 2010;  1,296 of whom were comped tickets by the promotion and 1,752 watched the action from private suites. According to the release, only 138 tickets went unsold for the show.

Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic was the second highest paid fighter with $150,000 which included a $75,000 win bonus for his rear naked choke submission over Pat Barry. Cro Cop also took home an additional $85,000 for submission of the night, but bonus awards and undisclosed back room bonuses paid out by the UFC are not included in the commission’s salary summary.

12 fighters, including Rich Franklin, Chuck Liddell, Pat Barry, Mirko Filipovic and Rory MacDonald were handed 180 day suspensions while the remainder of the fighters were given from 45-14 days off from training and fighting for lesser injuries or precautionary reasons.

The full list is after the jump:

This is for all the uninformed out there talking about shit they don't know. Listen up cause I'm only gonna say this once.

Chuck Liddell OWNS part of the Ufc. That's why he gets the big bucks. Dana White, Chuck Liddell, and the Fertitta brothers all made the initial investment and bought the floundering company from the Gracies back in the early turn of the century. They all played a huge roll in taking a failing, almost bankrupt Ufc and turning it into the Beast it is today. Prior to that, Dana white used to be Chuck Liddell's manager. Chuck will always be associated with the company. ALWAYS. And he will ALWAYS get paid. Like I said: He fucking owns it.

I hope this clears it up for all you ignorant fucks out there. Stop talking out your ass cause Now you know...

Rich Franklin only gets $55K to show? That seems a little low to me. ($210-85-70=55)
825IVER- June 25, 2010 at 7:09 am
some guys have really good management.
redcorner83- June 25, 2010 at 6:42 am
They said this show sold out in 45 minutes. But the athletic commission said 138 tickets went unsold. Is the UFC fudging numbers?
justscrappin- June 25, 2010 at 5:15 am
Lol...Chuck's chin is ribbon candy. The flavor? Hookers and blow.
numbnuts- June 25, 2010 at 2:33 am
500.00 for chuck Liddell no wonder he doesn't want to retire. Fuckin guy has been getting his ass kicked regularly for quite some time now GIVE HIM A FUCKIN PAYCUT. Let him go his stock has plummeted, he is over the hill and his jaw is fuckin beyond glass it is like that candy glass that shatters upon impact it's fuckin rediculous. Zuffa brags about UFC tickets selling out so fast in Van but what they don't mention is that the scalpers dropped their prices drasticly because there was low interest in the event from the fans. Chances are most scalpers aren't fans and didn't realize that nobody gives a flying fuck about Cuck Liddell anymore.
FreddyFangers- June 24, 2010 at 10:58 pm
Its time to call BF, BG. Offer him a raise to return. Make him one he cant refuse(maybe let him drop his full load down your throat, or something like that). I dunno, do something.
Dick_Misanthropenis- June 24, 2010 at 10:01 pm
Yeah Mcwrasslin', howzabout we makes YOU a nicknames? Maybe I'll start calling you Mcwrasslin', you yellow bellied Canadien interwebs journalist. And my manager says I have to replace those soggy fries free of charge so here you go.
glassjawsh- June 24, 2010 at 9:32 pm
BF just used this site like a cheap hooker until he found a classier hooker to shack up with. dont need him
jimbonics- June 24, 2010 at 9:25 pm
180 days for a little ham??
entisgood- June 24, 2010 at 9:14 pm
wheres the over/under paid section?
I hate to say it, but in general, since BF left, this site is on a slow path towards mediocrity.
Koeikan- June 24, 2010 at 8:15 pm
Chuck probably made around 2.5-3 million from that fight. It won't pull in big PPV numbers, but it probably did decently (I don't know if they have already announced anything...). Anyway, don't forget he gets a cut of that too and he has one of the best deals.

Franklin is a bargain at 70k/70k. He's not a superstar, but the how many times has the UFC called on him to headline a card under less than ideal circumstances (short notice, fighting at Franklinweight, etc)?
rearnakedchickenchoke- June 24, 2010 at 8:12 pm
You guys aren't following past conventions of posting the total paid with (includes bonuses in parens) so it's a bit confusing at first.

[insert whiny comment about the quality of this site going down the shitter since BF left.]

Seriously, just pointing out. I don't agree with those whiny comments.
Dick_Misanthropenis- June 24, 2010 at 7:09 pm
I made a whole box of broken dreams watching the consciousness become separated from Chuck's brain once again.
steampunk22- June 24, 2010 at 6:43 pm
@glassjaw

You got it mostly right. Depending on the contracts that they sign, some of the top fighters do not opt for win bonuses they just accept what the UFC typically labels "salary" pay at flat rate. There are still some top tier fighters though who get paid Show/Win styles.

Something tells me that Chuck's 500K was a bit of a thank you from Dana White for his years of service. Thats the single largest chunk I've seen the UFC disclose as a flat rate in a long time.
Get Off Me- June 24, 2010 at 6:38 pm
Even though he still lives with his folks, thank god Rory Mac won fight of the night...otherwise it would have been 180 days for 8k.....
Sakuraba3900- June 24, 2010 at 6:33 pm
Chucks been gettin paid like that for a while... Im not callin you all idiots or dumbasses or noobs or retards or idiotic dumbass retarded noobs or anything like that but thats all old news.
glassjawsh- June 24, 2010 at 6:24 pm
@captainsharkpants - he probably still owed DW for all the coke he snorted off his cock
CaptainPajamaShark- June 24, 2010 at 6:15 pm
Dunham would have made -$6,000 if he had lost to Griffin? Seems like a bum deal to me.
glassjawsh- June 24, 2010 at 6:14 pm
@ everyone who asked - the uber top guys (ie chuck and randy, etc) don't make a win bonus, they just get a bigger cut of the PPV sales, chuck got 500k win or lose for all of his fights dating back to the rampage fight and hasnt gotten a win bonus since he knocked out jeremy horn
justscrappin- June 24, 2010 at 5:41 pm
That's a rich-ass cunt. Oprah?
PurplePickle- June 24, 2010 at 5:36 pm
Chuck went to Vancouver and all he got was a lousy half mil and a cleft palate.
DazedNConfused- June 24, 2010 at 5:27 pm
Looking now, it seems everyone on the list made double to win. so yah, chuck must make 1mil to show/win.
What a cunt.
DazedNConfused- June 24, 2010 at 5:26 pm
Yah Im sure he makes much more than 70k to win. Id guess atleast 250,000, if not the full 500,000.

Chuck makes crazy money. Wow. No wonder he wants to keep fighting.
mmmiles9000- June 24, 2010 at 5:22 pm
@Kayo
It doesn't work that way. Liddell could very well have had a contract of 500 to show, 500 to win. There isn't a win "purse", each fighter signs their own contract for each fight, with their own show and win money.
