The fighter salaries for last weekend’s UFC On Versus 2 event have now been released and show that former PRIDE star Takanori Gomi was the biggest earner, taking home $80,000 for his spectacular KO win over Tyson Griffin.

Event headliner Jon Jones was next with $46,000, though if he continues on his current form then you can rest assured that in years to come the 23 year-old will be earning considerably more than that.

UFC veteran Yushin Okami also picked up $46,000 for his decision win over Mark Munoz.   Despite losing another fighter who’s been with the promotion for a number of years, Vladimir Matyushenko, was also amongst the top earners with a $31,000 pay packet.

On the other end of the scale Mike Massenzio took home just $5,000 after losing to former WEC champion Brian Stann who by contrast banked a respectable $34,000.
