The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the official list of fighter salaries stemming from this past weekend’s UFC 94 event, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Georges St. Pierre used superior wrestling and surprising grappling technique to dominate UFC lightweight king B.J. Penn and successfully defend his UFC welterweight belt in the show’s main event. Lyoto Machida also continued to build his argument for a shot at the UFC light heavyweight title with a first-round knockout of fellow undefeated Brazilian Thiago Silva.
Remember that this is only the base salary that a fighter received. Bonuses, deductions, and other undisclosed fees are not included.
