Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

It's been a while since the event, but the Minnesota Office of Combative Sports finally released salaries for the UFC on FX 5 event held on October 5th in the Target Center in Minneapolis. The biggest salaries went to Jake Ellenberger, who defeated Jay Hieron by decision, and Antonio Silva, who defeated Travis Browne in the main event.
