The UFC 191 basic salaries report is in and shows that despite headlining the show with his latest flyweight title defense, Demetrious Johnson’s $191,000 payday was not the highest on the card.

In fact three fighters earned more than him in Las Vegas on Saturday night, starting with recent light-heavyweight title contender Anthony Johnson who banked $230,000 for his latest KO victory.

Following close behind was Andrei Arlovski who commands a flat $225,000 from the UFC, win or lose, while his opponent Frank Mir took home $200,000.

No-one else made a six figure sum on the night with Ross Pearson next in line with $90,000.
