UFC 104 Fighter Payouts

By:

UFC THUMBMachida held on to his title and earned the most disclosed money at UFC 104.  Other fighters with large paydays include Mauricio Rua and Patrick Barry.  This is a great payday for Barry who disclosed to Five Knuckles that he was “broke” eating “rice and ketchup” before his fight.  Here is Barry’s exact quote:

“Hey man, I showed up to this fight broke. When we got to Los Angeles on Tuesday, I had ZERO dollars to my LIFE. I’m not even joking around. I had nothing sitting in the bank, nothing under the mattress at home, not even a piggy bank; nothing at all. Two days before we got to LA, I was literally eating white rice and ketchup. I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want anybody to worry or figure I was taking this fight for the money because I really wanted to fight. Financially I had nothing. I had no choice but to win.”

Here are all the fighter paydays from UFC 104:
