Main-card winner Chris Leben ($70,000) and co-headliner Keith Jardine ($52,000) were the top earners at this past weekend's latest UFC event, The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale.

 

MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) recently requested and today received the list of official salaries from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

 

The total disclosed payroll for the June 19 Spike TV-televised event was $406,000.

 

The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale took place at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. In the night's headliner, "TUF 11" cast member Court McGee submitted Kris McCray to win the reality show's 28-man middleweight tournament. McGee earned $16,000 for the victory.

 

The total disclosed paydays for the event included:

 

Court McGee: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus)

def. Kris McCray: $8,000

 

Matt Hamill: $52,000 ($26,000 win bonus)

def. Keith Jardine: $55,000

 

Chris Leben: $70,000 ($35,000 win bonus)

def. Aaron Simpson: $13,000

 

Dennis Siver: $34,000 ($17,000 win bonus)

def. Spencer Fisher: $26,000

 

Rich Attonito: $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus)

def. Jamie Yager: $8,000

 

John Gunderson: $10,000 ($5,000 win bonus)

def. Mark Holst: $6,000

 

Brad Tavares: $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus)

def. Seth Baczynski: $8,000

 

Kyle Noke: $16,000 ($8,000 win bonus)

def. Josh Bryant: $8,000

 

Chris Camozzi: $16,000 ($8000 win bonus)

def. James Hammortree: $8,000

 

Travis Browne: $12,000 ($6,000 win bonus)

def. James McSweeney: $8,000

 

Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other "locker room" or special bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays.

 

For example, as MMAjunkie.com previously reported, UFC officials handed out $25,000 "fight night" bonuses to Leben (Knockout of the Night), McGee (Submission of the Night), and Hamill and Jardine (Fight of the Night).

 

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
