NotImpressedByYourScreenName -  Carmouche made $12K to be the first woman to fight in the UFC and headline an event. Fkin disgrace.

I love how people on here were saying if she fought well shed get given a house, car, table etc.

And before the zombies come out of the woodwork with the "secret locker room bonus" bulkshit - GTFO.

12 fkin grand...what a joke. Phone Post

Considering she fought a lot harder than both Machida and Henderson, she was vastly underpaid to be in the main event. I'm hoping she got much more that wasn't disclosed to the public. Machida is straight stealing from the company.

Dana does hand out money that's not reported frequently to fighters.

Liz got more than that by far. Phone Post

If you think that Dana/Zuffa didn't take care of Liz beyond what her contract stipulated I don't know what to tell you.

They better take care of Carmouche above and beyond her reported purse.
She did a ton of interviews and appearances to promote this fight and pushed the champ farther than any other opponent. Phone Post

Internettufguy -  I always find it interesting looking at the payouts for the guys who don't have much confidence in their ability to win. IE Machida and Lawler. It doesn't say much for a fighter's confidence when they have less than half of their pay in the form of a win bonus.

I love Lawler, but my look back now at some of his fights, they were plenty of times or it didn't really seem like he was that into it and would never pull the trigger. He was getting paid basically the same just to show up as if he'd actually won. Phone Post

This might be still on Robbie's strikeforce contract. The strikeforce fighters typically didn't have a win bonus.
