The official UFC 175 salaries have been released by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). UFC 175: Weidman vs Machida was held Independence Day weekend, Saturday, July 5, 2014, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center 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 their work already completed in the gym, as well as their performance on fight night.

UFC Middleweight Champion Chris "The All-American" Weidman was the top earner with his half-million dollar payout at the UFC's annual Fourth of July weekend event.

UFC ON FOX 10 RESULTS: Ben Henderson Takes Controversial Decision over Josh Thomson - 1/25/14

The Ultimate Fighting Championship presented UFC on FOX 10: Henderson vs Thomson on Saturday, January 25, 2014, at the famed United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The main card aired live on the Fox network, and was preceded by the live prelim special on Fox Sports 1.

In the main event, former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson narrowly outpointed former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson to win his eighth decision in eight UFC victories. This was Henderson's third UFC win by split decision, and it could go down as his most controversial, although his recent split decision win over Gilbert Melendez and both of his victories over Frankie Edgar still remain highly protested by portions of the MMA fanbase. Admittedly, Henderson earned the most important thing – his win bonus. But his pedestrian performance did not earn him a return title shot according to UFC President Dana White in the video below.
