Bellator decided to go head-to-head with the UFC on Saturday, trotting out the first fight of their Heavyweight Grand Prix along with a much-anticipated welterweight title fight. The card turned out okay, and the four guys on top all made over 100k.

It was the two HWGP fighters, Chael Sonnen and Quinton Jackson, that made the bulk of the total purse though.

Here’s a look at the full reported salary rundown, courtesy of the California State Athletic Commission (via MMA Fighting). Interestingly, a lot of the top guys have flat-rate salaries with no win bonuses.
