As one would expect to be the case, welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and former light-heavyweight champ Rashad Evans were the top earners at Saturday’s UFC 167 card, according to figures released by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

St. Pierre was paid $400,000 for his tightly contested and controversial split decision win over Johny Hendricks, who made $50,000 for the main event bout.

Evans, meanwhile, earned $250,000 for his first round stoppage victory over Chael Sonnen, which includes a $125,000 win bonus. Sonnen was paid $100,000 for the loss, which followed a submission win over “Shogun” Rua in August.

The card’s third highest earner was welterweight vet Robbie Lawler, who made $166,000 (including a $83,000 win bonus) for his split decision victory over Rory MacDonald. “Ares” was paid $50,000.
