UFC on Fox 8 Salaries: Robbie Lawler and Melvin Guillard Lead the Way

UFC on Fox 8 took place on July 27 from the Key Arena in Seattle. The main event on the fight card saw flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defeat John Moraga via armbar at the 3:43 mark of Round 5. The submission was the latest in UFC history.

The co-main event saw Rory MacDonald jab his way to a unanimous decision victory in a fight that was viewed as either a brilliantly planned effort, or a boring, safe fight from MacDonald.
