Despite losing his heavyweight title and having his face mauled to the point where he’s barely recognizable, former UFC champion Junior dos Santos (Pictured) still left UFC 155 as the night’s biggest winner. According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, dos Santos scored a cool $400,000 in his lopsided unanimous decision defeat to Cain Velasquez. Velasquez, meanwhile, left Las Vegas with the hardware and $200,000, half of which came via win bonus. Please keep in mind, the numbers that get reported to the athletic commissions are only of what’s required. These figures do not include deductions for items such as licenses and taxes. Additionally, they do not contain money paid by sponsors or any bonuses from the UFC. These royalties can include pay-per-view commissions, Fight Night bonuses, top secret discretionary bonuses, etc., which can oftentimes represent a substantial portion of a fighter’s total income. MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas hosted Saturday’s event. Here are the official salaries for UFC 155: Preliminary Card: John Moraga: $22,000 (Includes $11,000 win bonus) Chris Cariaso: $12,000 Max Holloway: $24,000 (Includes $12,000 win bonus) Leonard Garcia: $20,000 Todd Duffee: $16,000 (Includes $8,000 win bonus) Philip De Fries: $14,000 Myles Jury: $16,000 (Includes $8,000 win bonus) Michael Johnson: $14,000 Jamie Varner: $24,000 (Includes $12,000 win bonus) Melvin Guillard: $42,000 Erik Perez: $20,000 (Includes $10,000 win bonus) Byron Bloodworth: $6,000 Eddie Wineland: $30,000 (Includes $15,000 win bonus) Brad Pickett: $17,000 Main Card: Derek Brunson: $30,000 (Includes $17,000 win bonus) Chris Leben: $51,000 Yushin Okami: $84,000 (Includes $42,000 win bonus) Alan Belcher: $37,000 Constantinos Philippou: $36,000 (Includes $18,000 win bonus) Tim Boetsch: $37,000 Jim Miller: $82,000 (Includes $41,000 win bonus) Joe Lauzon: $27,000 Junior dos Santos: $400,000 Cain Velasquez: $200,000 (Includes $100,000 win bonus)
