Liddell vs. Ortiz 3 Salaries Disclosed

The salaries for fighters competing on Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions’ first venture into MMA have been disclosed, and the headliners will be taking home a significant chunk of change — especially compared to everyone else.

Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz, who are both coming out of retirement for their trilogy encounter, will each take home at least a six-figure payday. Liddell will earn $250,000 for the fight, while Ortiz will get $200,000. Neither man gets a win bonus.

The next-highest payday goes to Tom Lawlor, who competes in the co-main event and will earn $25,000 with no win bonus.

This does not include pay-per-view sales, merchandise and any other means Liddell and Ortiz will earn a cut of for the event.
