UFC on FOX disclosed payouts. $320k to the California Kid

I love the $50,000 bonuses that the UFC gives out. We see fighters all the time saying , “Dana, give me that bonus!”. The situations that make it the most heartwarming is when newcomers to the promotion who are getting entry level pay, win that bonus. Such was the case this Saturday night at UFC on FOX.

Irene Aldana was a relative unknown as she stepped into the Octagon with her opponent Leslie  Smith. When all was said and done and the ladies went to war for the full 15 minutes and put on a show. Aldana was contracted $12,000 to show and $12,000 to win. Her $12,000 show money plus $50,000 bonus, brought her payday to $62,000. I guarantee you she has never seen that kind of money in her career. So a very Merry Christmas to her!

The payout was dominated by the California Kid, Urijah Faber. Faber pulled in a whopping $320,000 for his farewell fight versus Brad Pickett. Urijah has pioneered the way for the smaller weight fighter. Not just in the UFC, but MMA in general. He deserves every bit of the massive payday he received. I hope he buys a yacht with it!

Super Sage Northcutt came in second place, earning $60,000. Northcutt is now 3-2 in the promotion and still just 20 years old.
