Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale payouts and salaries: Michael Bisping counts $425,000 for stopping Mayhem Miller


The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale payouts and salaries for those who competed at the "Bisping vs. Miller" Spike TV event this past Saturday night (Dec. 3, 2011) from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, were released to earlier today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

Michael Bisping came into "Sin City" with a few extra pounds and will leave with a few extra thousand. The brash Brit will "Count" the $425,000 he made for beating the brakes off Jason Miller in the night's main event, one that only pocketed "Mayhem" $45,000 in defeat.

TUF 14 champions John Dodson and Diego Brandao made the standard 8/8 post-show pocket change, raking in $16,000 apiece for their winning performances. That, coupled with the 40-grand they secured in post-fight bonuses and they'll have a lot to celebrate this holiday season.

Fellow TUF champ Anthony Ferguson (season 13) came in at number three with $30,000 for convincing the judges he was a better fighter than Yves Edwards, who contributes to the Thugjitsu retirement fund with $16,000.
