    UFC on ESPN 12 salaries: Dustin Poirier leads three fighters with six-figure paydays

    Dustin Poirier was the biggest winner at UFC on ESPN 12, both figuratively and financially.
    After gutting out a grueling unanimous decision win over Dan Hooker in the main event Saturday, Poirier (26-6 MMA, 18-5 UFC) took home a $300,000 disclosed purse. Add on his “Fight of the Night” bonus, and Poirier pocketed $350,000 total for his efforts.
    MMA Junkie on Monday obtained a list of fighter salaries from the Nevada Athletic Commission for UFC on ESPN 12, which took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
    Poirier, 31, was among three fighters to earn a six-figure paycheck. Joining him were Hooker, who earned $110,000, and Mike Perry, who pocketed $180,000 after defeating Mickey Gall, who made $50,000.



    The total disclosed pay for the 10-fight card was $1.14 million.
    The full list of UFC on ESPN 12 salaries includes:


    The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, including the official UFC on ESPN 12 Promotional Guidelines Compliance pay. They also do not include any other “locker room” or special discretionary bonuses the UFC sometimes pays. They also do not include pay-per-view cuts that some top-level fighters receive.
    For example, UFC officials also handed out a “Fight of the Night” bonus to Poirier and Hooker – and two $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonuses to Hansen and Erosa.
    In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.

    Nice to see some good money being paid out to these fighters. Mike Perry $90k/$90k holy smokes! That's a lot for a 7-6 UFC fighter.

    He's on the standard first four fight contract. Almost all UFC fighters on the first contract earn the same. It looks something like this.

    Fight #1: $10k/$10k
    Fight #2: $12k/$12k
    Fight #3: $14k/$14k
    Fight #4: $16k/$16k

    If they get to a second contract that's when they have an opportunity to re-negotiate and start to make big bucks.

    Bellator pays their entry level.

    $1500 to show.
    $1500 to win.

    Even if that doesn't look the best.

    Tanner Boner is making almost 10 times what bellator pays.
