Ever wondered what is pays getting punched in the face in the UFC?  Well if you’re at the top of the sport you could be banking what these top ten guys do. Of course, these are only the reported salaries and bonuses for 2013. Other contractial bonuses, pay-per-view cuts and sponsorship money isn’t counted; and I’m not magical so I don’t know those figures.  If you needed inspiration to hit the gym, besides personal satisfaction, check out the list below.

With all those disclaimers out of the way, here are the top 10 highest earning fighters so far in 2013.

10. Cain Velasquez $400,000

This heavyweight was last in the ring for UFC 160. He went up against Antonio Silva and won by TKO in the first round. With a 12-1 record(10 by TKO or KO) what else did you expect?

9. Mark Hunt $420,000

Mark Hunt has fought twice this year in the heavyweight devision. Along the way he’s raked up quite a tidy payday, and shattered Stefan Struve’s jaw.

8. Frankie Edgar $460,000


This high school wrestler has gone to have an impressive 16-4 record in the UFC. After his win over Charles Oliveira at UFC 162 we’re sure they were fist pumping in Jersey.

7. Dan Henderson $500,000


Hendo’s never been KOed in a pro fight.

6. Jose Aldo $530,000



He’s undefeated in the UFC and not hurting for cash either!
