Ken BeckettCorrespondent IJune 24, 2010

Despite UFC 115 taking place almost two weeks ago—on June 12 at GM Place in Vancouver, British Columbia—B/R MMA has exclusively obtained the fighter's salary and bonus info from the Vancouver Athletic Commission.

The total attendance for the night was 17,669 with a gross gate of $4.2 million. The total fighter payout, including bonuses such as fight, knockout, and submission of the night, was $1.6 million.

Main event fighter Chuck Liddell was the top earner at UFC 115. Liddell took home $500,000 for what was likely the last fight of his career after being knocked out by Rich Franklin at 4:55 of the first round. Franklin earned $225,000 ($70,000 of which was a win bonus, and $85,000 for knockout of the night).

The other big winners on the night were Mirko Cro Cop ($235,000), Carlos Condit ($137,000), and Ben Rothwell ($100,000).
