GSP out with torn abductor and fighters salaries
 
MRI confirms GSP tore muscle

Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre tore a tendon in his right abductor during his UFC 100 bout in Las Vegas Saturday night, MRI results confirmed Tuesday.

St. Pierre, who said he snapped his abductor muscle in the third round of his unanimous decision victory over Thiago Alves, had already been handed a medical suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Heíll be out of action until Jan. 8 unless a doctor says otherwise.

The Montrealer underwent the MRI in his home town on Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury. Even if cleared by an orthopedic doctor, St. Pierre was still under a suspension until Aug. 11 for precautionary reasons, with no contact until Aug. 2.

Three other fighters were suspended for the same length. Yoshihiro Akiyama, who defeated Alan Belcher by split decision, suffered a fractured left orbital bone. If cleared by an ophthalmologist, heíll be able to fight again on Aug. 11; otherwise, heís out until Jan. 8.

Meanwhile undercard winners Jim Miller and Shannon Gugerty have minor injuries that will need doctorís clearance in order for each to fight before January.

Frank Mir and Michael Bisping, both victims of knockouts at the hands of Brock Lesnar and Dan Henderson, respectively, were suspended until Sept. 10 with no contact until Aug. 26.

NOTES: Brock Lesnar and Georges St. Pierre led the nightís paydays, each earning $400,000 for their wins (Lesnarís purse was guaranteed).

you have to think though before he fought Kos he was a nobody. I am sure if he wins the rest of his fight on his contract he will make more on his next contract.

Bisping won TUF and they make 6 figures. i think he resigned since then and no doubt makes more. Brock's the number 1 PPV draw so obviously he makes bank.
