For those Bleacher Report loyalists, you may remember a piece last year when I broke down the highest paid fighters in the UFC in 2009.
Well, now it's 2011, the figures are all over the place, so it's time to find out which fighters were ballin' in 2010. If you want to check out all the math that goes in to creating these figures, check out the article breaking down 2009.
The figures contain herein are based on disclosed pay from the athletic commissions, various bonuses, and pay-per-view revenue sharing based on a document that was disclosed during the UFC vs Couture lawsuit. They do not factor in any sponsorship or locker room money that the fighters may receive.
While these pay figures are not going to be spot on given the fact there are many unknowns, it still should be a pretty good gauge of who the phat cats in the UFC are. If anything, it's fun to ponder and debate.
According to the figures I came up with last year, Georges St. Pierre was the highest paid fighter in the UFC, making an estimated $6.7 million.
Enough of me, let's get this show on the road.
