UFC 175 Fighter Salaries: Chris Weidman Tops the List Just Under Half a Million Dollars

UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman cemented his status atop the division at UFC 175 on Saturday night in Las Vegas, when he won a unanimous decision over Lyoto Machida. He was rewarded for his efforts with a $450,000 reported payday, which put him atop the UFC 175 fighter salaries, according to MMAJunkie.com, citing the Nevada Athletic Commission.

UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey continued to build her legacy by knocking out Alexis Davis in just 16 seconds. She, however, was third on the list of publicly disclosed salaries, drawing $120,000 to Machida's $200,000.
