Today (Mon., January 5, 2014) the NSAC has released the full UFC 182 fighter salaries for this past weekend’s (Sat., January 3, 2015) pay-per-view (PPV) event from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones predictably earned the card’s biggest payday by taking home $500,000 for his decisive victory over arch nemesis Daniel Cormier (watch highlights here). “DC” took home $90,000 for the loss, hardly a consolation prize for a man who wanted nothing other than to be a champion.

Lightweight Donald Cerrone was the second biggest earner of the night with 0,000 for his decision win over previously undefeated Myles Jury in the co-main event (watch highlights here). Failing to mount any significant offense, “Fury” earned a paltry $16,000 for his efforts, which wouldn’t seem like a number befitting of a PPV co-main event participant on one of the promotion’s most anticipated cards.
