Chris Weidman made $48k in disclosed money for his UFC 162 championship victory.


Chris Weidman may have walked away from UFC 162 with the middleweight title around his waists, but he still has a long way to go before starts making Anderson Silva money. The Spider was the biggest winner of the event as he pocketed $600,000 according to the figures released by the Nevada Athletic Commission. The UFC also releases undisclosed locker room bonus and the main event fighters usually receive a share of the pay-per-view revenue, and it is very likely that both Silva and Weidman make out with a seven-figure payday.

What a travesty that a guy fighting for a title made less money than guys fighting on the prelims.
