    UFC 86 salaries: Forrest Griffin earns $250K, Quinton Jackson gets $225K

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Jul 07, 2008 at 2:15 pm ET
    [​IMG]Main-event winner and new UFC lightweight champion Forrest Griffin earned a base salary of $250,000 at UFC 86, and opponent Quinton Jackson picked up $225,000. The two fighters earned the show's highest base salaries -- and more than half the total payroll.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today obtained the list of official salaries from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    Total payroll for the pay-per-view event, which took place July 5 at the Mandalay Bay Events in Las Vegas, was $943,000.

    Griffin and Jackson accounted for 50.4 percent of the payroll.

    Also worth noting is that Gabriel Gonzaga earned the event's third-highest payout ($100,000) despite appearing in an un-aired preliminary card.

    The full list of salaries included:

    Forrest Griffin: $250,000 (includes $150,000 win bonus) def.
    Quinton Jackson: $225,000

    Patrick Cote: $32,000 ($16,000 win bonus) def.
    Ricardo Almeida: $23,000

    Joe Stevenson: $60,000 ($30,000 win bonus) def.
    Gleison Tibau: $11,000

    Josh Koscheck: $70,000 ($35,000 win bonus) def.
    Chris Lytle: $14,000

    Tyson Griffin: $40,000 ($20,000 win bonus) def.
    Marcus Aurelio: $40,000

    Gabriel Gonzaga: $100,000 ($50,000 win bonus) def.
    Justin McCully: $5,000

    Cole Miller: $20,000 ($10,000 win bonus) def.
    Jorge Gurgel: $ 10,000

    Melvin Guillard: $20,000 ($10,000 win bonus) def.
    Dennis Siver: $7,000

    Justin Buchholz: $8,000 ($4000 win bonus) def.
    Corey Hill: $8,000

    That would be so rad but probley not. Jesus Rampage and his camp had alot riding on this fight for him not to finish it. Rampage betting his whole purse and now his trainer has to retire. Both won't happen though.

    i thought lytle's effort and bloody performance could have given the kos-lytle fight the FOTN bonus.
    that was the hardest earned $14k ive seen in a long time in the octagon. also rampage and forrest were gonna get paid big regardless so i thought that was more reason to give the FOTN to lytle-kos.

    I like the Millions that Dana White makes every UFC fight, and he can't give a few million to the people that make the sport happen?

    Am I missing something here?

    Yeah, they sign contracts and agree to it. If they are worth a shit they can get sponsered by somebody and get $ from advertising.
    I just love it when people hate successful people.

  22. Sloppy sloppy writing.

    The quality of writing for MMA sites is so low.

    When I worked as a bouncer I got punched in the face occasionally and never seen much of the millions the clubs I worked at made.
