The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the pay day information for UFC 125: Resolution. Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar ($102,000) and light heavyweight Thiago Silva ($110,000) led the pack.

The total pay out was $872,000. 

The UFC sold 12,688 tickets for a $2,174,780 live gate.

The pay per view is expected to be in the lower range for UFC events with MMA Payout predicting about 400,000 buys. It's entirely possible the event exceeded PPV expectations.
