UFC 175 salaries: Chris Weidman tops the payroll at $450,000

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman was one of four fighters to record a six-figure payday at UFC 175.

The UFC 175 salaries are out, and there's not too much to really dissect here. Chris Weidman tops the lot with a $225k/$225k split for his unanimous decision win against Lyoto Machida, who pocketed $200,000. Ronda Rousey earned $120,000 while Alexis Davis made $1500 per second in her really quick and painful loss to Rousey. She did not pick up show money for her brief fight with Yves Lavigne.

Urijah Faber's $120,000 ($60k/$60k) rounds out the list of fighters who earned six-figures. Although neither man fought on Saturday, Stefan Struve ($40,000/$40,000) and Matt Mitrione ($30,000/$30,000) were paid their show and win money.

Here's a full list of salaries as released by the Nevada Athletic Commission. It should be noted that these figures do not represent a fighter's total earnings, as they do not include sponsorship money, locker room bonuses, or the post-fight bonuses (such as the $50,000 performance bonuses handed out to Ronda Rousey and Rob Font).
