Not too shabby for four minutes of work inside the cage.
Rousey earned $90,000 for her first-round submission of Carmouche, which included a $45,000 win bonus. Carmouche received just $12,000 in defeat, but UFC President Dana White was pleased with her performance and will likely give her another chance at a big payday on a future card.
Rousey and Carmouche may have actually made far more than the aforementioned figures, as the released numbers do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes.
Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income.
They also do not include any other locker room or special discretionary bonuses, such as Fight of the Night or Submission of the Night. Some UFC fighters have come out and stated that their actual checks are substantially more than what is disclosed to the public.
The figures released to the public are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.
UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche actually featured a co-main event that paid out more than the headliners, as Dan Henderson earned $250,000 to fight Lyoto Machida.
As for Machida, he picked up a sizable $200,000 check with no win bonus.
