UFC 155 payouts and salaries: Junior dos Santos doubles up Cain Velasquez, wins consolation prize of $400k

UFC 155 fighter payouts for those who competed at the "Dos Santos vs. Velasquez 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event this past Saturday night (Dec. 29, 2012) from the MGM Grand Garden Casino in Las Vegas were released to earlier today by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

And Junior dos Santos is your winner.

"Cigano" may have coughed up his heavyweight strap to Cain Velasquez after five rounds of brutality, but he has 400,000 reasons to feel better about himself on Monday morning. Velasquez, meanwhile, reclaimed his title and a $200,000 payday with the lopsided win in "Sin City" (watch it here).

That's not all.

Former middleweight number one contender Yushin Okami took third with $84,000 after outworking Alan Belcher ($37,000), which is just a few dollars ahead of Jim Miller, who banked $82,000 for his "Fight of the Night" against Joe Lauzon ($27,000).
