UFC 71: Rampage and Chuck split nearly a million bucks

ufc 69 smart betsQuinton "Rampage" Jackson and Chuck Liddell took home the bacon last night for less than two minutes of work.

Jackson earned $450,000 for his first-round knockout win and Liddell pocketed $500,000 for the loss, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The "Iceman" would have netted another half-million bonus with a victory.

These are early figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). The total UFC 71 fight card payouts and salaries is not yet available.

We'll work on tracking them down in the next few days.

In addition, these figures don't include sponsorship deals, fight bonuses, pay-per-view (PPV) proceeds or any other revenue sources.

It's safe to say that each fighter made considerably more than "just" these base salaries.

Regardless, it looks like Dana "It's Good To Be" White is taking nice care of his new champion for handling his bit-ness inside the Octagon.

Talk about motivation to keep training and winning.

Look out.
