The official UFC 187 basic salaries have been revealed and show a number of fighters raked in a six figure sum on the night. Perhaps most surprising is Anthony Johnson who banked a hefty $500,000 fee for his night’s work despite losing out to Daniel Cormier who took home a comparatively modest $180,000. It’s not clear why ‘Rumble’ received such a healthy payout, which puts...

UFC187: Cormier Wins But I Refuse To Call Him Champ
