UFC Fight Night 88 salaries: Headliners aren't the top earners

Unlike most UFC events, the headlining fighters at UFC Fight Night 88 didn't take home the largest salaries.

UFC Fight Night 88 featured a lot of veterans and some young guns duking it out. What it didn't feature was big salaries. Just one fighter cracked the six-figure mark, and that one barely got there. Co-main event wining Jeremy Stephens earned 100k for his win over Renan Barao, with the former champ making 50k for the bout. Headliners Cody Garbrandt and Thomas Almeida took home 48k and 25k respectively.

Rick Story, Chris Camozzi, Lorenz Larkin, Jorge Masvidal, Sara McMann, and Abel Trujillo all cracked the 50k mark as well.
