Payout Perspective:

No real surprise that Faber earned the most on this card.  But is anyone else a little surprised that Miesha Tate was second in base salary on this card in her debut in the UFC.  Gonzaga and Jorgenson right behind Tate in base salary at $24K and $23.5K respectively.

    Gotta feel bad for Gastelum. It’s likely just a matter of time before Hall starts making more money than him despite the loss. Why can’t the UFC improve the awful TUF contract to make the show more attractive to better fighters in general?
