def. Siyar Bahadurzada: $33,000

Montel Jackson: $16,000 (includes $10,000 win bonus)
def. Brian Kelleher: $27,000*

*Jackson forfeited $4,000 of his show money to Kelleher for missing weight.

Payout Perspective:

It would seem like Jackson should be given his $4,000 by the UFC or Jon Jones this time around.  While he missed weight, with all that went on during fight week, it seems like he should be given a pass.  The payouts reveal that Andre Arlovski ($300,000), BJ Penn ($150K) and Carlos Condit ($115K) are well-paid fighters that aren’t living up to their pay scale.  One would have to wonder what does their future hold.
