Below are the disclosed fighter salaries from UFC 126 as reported by MMAJunkie.com.  As usual, these figures do not include sponsorship packages or any special “locker room bonuses.”  One interesting note, though the champion Anderson Silva did not only was not the top purse earner, but he also did not receive a win bonus.  Granted, as MMA Junkie points out, Silva’s contract probably guarantees him a portion of the PPV upside which could net him a pretty hefty chunk of change.

Anderson Silva ($200,000) defeated Vitor Belfort ($275,000)

Forrest Griffin ($275,000 includes $150,000 win bonus) defeated Rich Franklin ($75,000)

Jon Jones ($140,000 includes $70,000 win bonus) defeated Ryan Bader ($20,000)

Jake Ellenberger ($32,000 includes $16,000) defeated Carlos Eduardo Rocha ($8,000)

Miguel Angel Torres ($56,000 includes $28,000 win bonus) defeated Antonio Banuelos ($9,000)
