UFC 178: Johnson vs Cariaso was held Saturday, September 27, 2014, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
These salary amounts do not include any individual fighter endorsement earnings for this event, nor do they include any undisclosed bonuses, which are commonly paid to fighters by Zuffa in private. Fighters pay out of pocket for training, licensing fees and related expenses. Fighters spend months training for these fights, so they are being paid for the work they have already completed in the gym, as well as their performance on fight night.
Newly emerged MMA mega superstar Conor McGregor was the top earner of the night with his $200,000 payout.
October 2014 Madman Top 25 MMA Rankings + Top 25 WMMA Rankings with Complete List of Upcoming Ranked Fights
Official MMAmadman.com Mixed Martial Arts Rankings
The Madman MMA Rankings are based primarily on results from the current year (2014) and the previous 3 years (2013, 2012, 2011) with career records, head-to-head competition, results against common opponents, methods of victory, and current clout within the sport factored into the formula.
All MMA rankings are subjective. Our rankings are not intended to be definitive, but rather an ever-changing rough draft providing fans a glimpse into the pro MMA landscape on any given day. The goal is to be as objective as possible by allowing the results to speak for themselves, and otherwise finding a fair balance between results and performances. Given the enormity of the task of ranking hundreds of fighters in 13 weight classes, there are times when projections are necessary. The intangibles stem from MMA being a one-on-one contact sport whose athletes often have short shelf-lives, and in which the top fighters generally only compete 3 times a year at most. Whenever possible, actual results and in-cage performances are weighted heavier than potential or perceived favorites.
Active pro MMA fighters with at least 2 professional mixed martial arts fights are eligible to be ranked if they have fought in the past year, if they currently hold a title in a major MMA organization, or if they have fought in the past 2 years and have an Upcoming Fight currently scheduled. Fighters are ranked in the weight class in which they last fought, unless they have announced definitive plans to return to a division in which they have previously fought in the past 3 years.
