UFC 125 Salaries: Edgar Unanimous Winner

The winner, by unanimous decision, Frankie “The Answer” Edgar.  That is what Bruce Buffer probably should have said at the end of UFC 125’s main event, but, alas, the judges decided otherwise.  But the UFC’s Lightweight Champ was the unanimous monetary winner at UFC 125, pocketing $162,000 for his troubles (both Edgar and Gray Maynard were awarded their win bonuses despite their match being ruled a draw.)
