The UFC 168 pay-per-view numbers are still not in, but the event is expected to be one of the biggest fight cards in the company’s history. Anderson Silva earned the most money of any fighter with a huge five-figure payday, which does not include pay-per-view cut that most of the UFC’s biggest draws receive.
 
Fighter likes Silva and former welterweight champion George St. Pierre routinely earn large seven-figure paydays for headlining pay-per-views. It has been reported that both fighters have earned upwards of $5 million for multiple fighters in their legendary career. Silva take home from UFC 168 may even surpass the $5 million dollar mark if the pay-per-view numbers are a hit.

Indeed, the match in last season would not have met the expectations of the audience for what was in this time.
