via cdn3.sbnation.com

The official fighter purses for those who competed at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 Finale this past Saturday night (June 4, 2011) from The Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas were released earlier today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

As expected, lightweight veteran Clay Guida was the top earner of the night. "The Carpenter" earned his keep with a unanimous decision win over Anthony Pettis ($10,000) while former TUF guy Ed Herman nabbed second place with $48,000 for his mistreatment of Tim Credeur ($10,000).

Newly crowned TUF 13 champion Anthony Ferguson banked a meager $16,000 when all was said and done but also pocketed a "six-figure contract" for knocking out Ramsey Nijem ($8,000) in the night's main event.
