UFC 154 Fighter Salaries, Attendance & Gate

Dante Fowler


George St-Pierre couldn’t have drawn up a better return to the Octagon than what actually transpired at UFC 154 (other than that Carlos Condit head kick he ate).  GSP battered Condit for a decision win in front of a roaring home crowd, and also walked away with the biggest pay check.

Before we go any further, we should note that international events generally don’t release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official.  However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter’s pay based on official purse info released from past fights.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 26 fighters that traded blows (actually, Ring and Philippou didn’t trade blows but they still got paid their show money) at the event (but please remember – this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event).
