The fighter salaries resulting from UFC On FOX 7 have now been revealed and show that lightweight champion Ben Henderson was the evening’s biggest earner with a $200,000 payday.

Equalling that sum was co-main event star Frank Mir despite his defeat on the night.

Following closely behind was former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez who pocketed $175,000, while Daniel Cormier was the only other star to take home a six-figure sum, banking $126,000.

It should also be noted that Nate Diaz’s fee is claimed to be $15,000, but my belief is that it’s a typo and should actually be $50,000 which is what he earned last time out.
