UFC 102 fighters earned a total disclosed payroll of $1,285,000 for their efforts this past weekend at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore.
The highest earner of the night was main event winner Antonio “Minotauro” Nogueira who took home a total of $400,000. Nick Catone was the lowest earner on the card. He lost a split decision to Mark Munoz in the prelims and took home $5,000 for his troubles.
Just possibly the highest paid preliminary card fighter in history was Gabriel Gonzaga who took home a nice $120,000 for his utter decimation and castration of Chris Tuchscherer.
