When Ben Henderson signed with Bellator, it was easy to conclude that he was going to get paid a lot more than he was making in the UFC. Based on the disclosed salaries for Bellator 160 though (which were released by the California State Athletic Commission), that doesn't appear to be the case. He is making more, but it's not out of this world or anything.
Henderson, a former WEC and UFC lightweight champion, made 75k with no win bonus for his victory over Patricio Freire. Freire, who broke his fibula in the second round and was forced to bow out of the fight, earned 50k for the night.
Henderson's last reported UFC salary was against Donald Cerrone in early 2015, where he made 48k in a losing effort. He made 45k/45k for a total of 90k for a win over Rustam Khabilov in June 2014.
