Default Bisping's Salary

I think I'm basically going to answer my own question here but anyways....is Bisping that much of a draw that he can warrant this salary? He has a bunch of wins under his belt, etc. I don't mind watching him fight. I'm not really complaining about his salary, but I do find it curious he makes this much. I mean I think it's in line with many of the top fighters that are more well known. Ex-champions, etc. He got $275,000 plus 150,000 win bonus Granted I also know that the more top level guys that have been in the sport for awhile etc can get 250k plus other earnings that aren't made public, but still I find this interesting.

TUF 14 FINALE FIGHTER SALARIES

Michael Bisping: $425,000 (includes $150,000 win bonus)
def. Jason “Mayhem” Miller: $45,000

I think he's a big enough draw whether you like to see him win, or you want to see him lose lol.

It was on free TV so he had no chance to get any of the PPV monies. That no doubt is where the real money is at. So I bet his base salary was higher because of the loss or money that would come from a PPV. I bet no main eventer makes less than a half million at any time so I am not all that surprised of this disclosed salary being that high.

What bothered me was all the TUF guys got the same check but Josh Clopton. I wonder why he only got 6000 and everyone else got 8000.

Yeah, that's very weird! That's a 25% cut and (I'm sure) a lot of money for him.


OK, I just assumed Bisping got that much because he's Dana's boy.
