The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the disclosed payroll figures for Saturday's UFC 146 event, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Topping the night's payroll were Junior dos Santos, Frank Mir, and Cain Velasquez, who each earned a disclosed $200,000 for the event.
Dos Santos is more than likely earning a pay-per-view percentage as well, with his $200,000 being a flat fee with no win bonus. The full payroll for the event was $1,233,000.
