UFC 116 Fighter Payouts

fertittas cash

The UFC 116 fighter payouts were released today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). The bigger winner on the card is obviously Brock Lesnar who pulled in 400k plus a 75k Submission of the Night fight bonus. Goran Reljic was the low man on the totem pole, pulling in a ridiculous 5k for his performance. Hopefully he gets a little extra cash from his sponsors, since his fight was broadcast on the PPV, after the main event.
