UFC 76 Salaries and Bonuses

The California State Athletic Commission has released the official fighter salaries for UFC 76. As always these salaries do not include all money made by the fighters and are simply the amounts Zuffa is required to report to the sanctioning commission.

In addition to the salaries below $40,000 awards for the event were also handed out. Tyson Griffin and Thiago Tavares took home the bonus for “Fight of the Night” and Forrest Griffin was awarded “Submission of the Night”. No “Knockout of the Night” was awarded as there were none on the card.
