Martin Kampmann was getting the worse of it in his clash last night versus Thiago Alves.  But, in the nick of time, The Hitman snatched victory out of the jaws of defeat and came home a winner, both in the Octagon and at the bank.  Next stop, top 10 of our welterweight rankings?
  
Before we go any further, we should note that Australia doesn't release fighter pay info, so none of the following salary data for the event is official. However, you can get a fairly accurate picture of a fighter's pay based on official purse info released from past fights.  So, based on that info, here is the estimated pay breakdown for the 24 fighters that traded blows at the event (but please remember - this is only an estimate, not official info, especially for any fighters that made their UFC debuts at the event or for Mark Hunt, whose salary has never been publically revealed since joining the UFC).  These numbers obviously also don't include any PPV revenue, undisclosed bonuses and/or sponsorship money any of these fighters may have made.


Martin Kampmann: $108,000 ($29,000 to show, $29,000 win bonus, $50,000 Submission of the Night bonus)

Joseph Benavidez: $93,000 ($21,500 to show, $21,500 win bonus, $50,000 Knockout of the Night bonus)
