Michael Bisping tops TUF 14 payroll

There is always a certain level of financial disparity involved when it comes to the salaries earned at any given Mixed Martial Arts event. However, list of payouts for the Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale boasts an enormous gap between Michael Bisping and the rest of the lineup that could be one for the record books.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission released the information earlier today revealing Bisping as making the most of any fighter at $425,000. Next closest was headlining opponent Jason Miller who made about a tenth of the Brit’s loot at $45,000. For further perspective, “The Count” earned nearly $150,000 more than the other nineteen competitors on the card combined.

All TUF 14 contestants earned a base pay of $8,000 with another $8,000 going to the winners.

Here is a full rundown of TUF 14 payouts (sums do not include $40,000 event-specific bonuses):

Bryan Caraway: $16,000 (includes $8,000 win bonus) def. Dustin Neace: $8,000

MMATraining Take: Before people get too upset consider the dues Bisping has paid inside the Octagon as well as the fact he’s essentially the face of the UFC in the UK. Miller, on the other hand, hadn’t done much in the years preceding his signing and was definitely not a six-figure candidate. The only reason Bisping’s salary looks so insane is because he was fighting on a TUF Finale.
