UFC on Fox 8: Salaries & suspensions

Here, to close out UFC on Fox 8, are the final salary numbers and medical suspensions.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

UFC on Fox 8 entertained some, disappointed others. Legacies were enhanced, even if those legacies involved not being terribly fan friendly. Seattle came out with a new found reputation for terrible judging, and Demetrious Johnson gained a reputation as something more than a point fighter.

Now, with another event right around the corner, it's time to put UFC on Fox 8 to bed with the final payouts and medical suspensions. Nine fighters were suspended for six months or longer, so if you had a favorite fighter in the lineup you may not be seeing them for some time. Robbie Lawler was far and away the night's biggest earner, with over $150,000 of the night's $850,000 reported payroll. Melvin Guillard and Ed Herman ran a distant second and third respectively, although Guillard made up some of that gap with his knock-out bonus.
