The UFC 106 fighter salaries have been released by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and the total disclosed fighter payroll was $1,021,000. Main event fighters Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin were the highest paid fighters on the card.
A former UFC Light Heavyweight Champ, Griffin earned $100,000 to step back in the Octagon with Tito Ortiz, and earned another $150,000 as a bonus for getting the split decision victory.
Also a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion (the longest reigning in UFC history), Ortiz took home a flat rate of $250,000. Win or lose, he would have made the same amount.
