Bellator 142 Salaries

Post by Rizin=PRIDEFC on Wed Sep 23, 2015 4:49 pm

Headliner and MMA vet Tito Ortiz was the top MMA earner at this past Saturday’s Bellator 142 event.

Ortiz took home $300,000 in disclosed pay despite his first-round title loss to reigning light-heavyweight titleholder Liam McGeary (11-0 MMA, 8-0 BMMA), who earned a flat $50,000 with no win bonus.

MMAjunkie recently requested and today obtained the official disclosed paydays from the California State Athletic Commission.

The night’s other top earner, Phil Davis (15-3 MMA, 2-0 BMMA), picked up victories over replacement Francis Carmont (24-11 MMA, 2-1 BMMA) and Emanuel Newton (25-9-1 MMA, 8-3 BMMA) to win the organization’s single-night light-heavyweight tournament. Davis, fighting for the first time since leaving the UFC, earned $130,000.

Bellator 142, also dubbed “Bellator MMA & Glory: Dynamite 1,” took place at San Jose’s SAP Center, and it featured a mix of MMA and kickboxing matchups. The main card aired on Spike following prelims on MMAjunkie.

The total disclosed MMA payroll for the event was $653,750.

The full Bellator 142 payouts (MMA only) included:

Liam McGeary: $50,000 (no win bonus)
def. Tito Ortiz: $300,000

Phil Davis: $130,000 (includes $65,000 win bonus)
def. Francis Carmont: $17,000

Josh Thomson: $10,000 (no win bonus)

Muhammed Lawal: $15,000 (no win bonus)
def. Linton Vassell: $30,000

Gabriel Carrasco: $4,000 (includes $2,000 win bonus)
def. Joe Neal: $2,000

Adam Piccolotti: $4,000 (includes $2,000 win bonus)
def. Salvador Becerra: $1,750

vs. Mike Malott: $2,000 (no win bonus since fight ended in draw)

Francis Carmont: See above
def. Anthony Ruiz: $5,000

Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which oftentimes can be a substantial portion of a fighter’s income.

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
