UFC 104 Fighter Payouts


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.”
