The basic salaries from UFC Fight Night 71 have now been released and show that Frank Mir was the only fighter earning a six figure sum on the night, taking home $200,000 after his KO victory over fellow main eventer Todd Duffee who by contrast was one of the lowest earners on the night, banking just £$12,000.

Even in defeat the second highest earner on the night was still Josh Thomson who earned $85,000, followed by the man who beat him, Tony Ferguson who was on $60,000, as was Manny Gamburyan.

As always it’s worth bearing in mind that these figures are just the basic salaries and don’t include additional income sources for the fighter such as sponsorship money and bonuses.
