List of UFC 132 salaries revealed that Tito Ortiz does not even received a “Big, Big, Big Pay Cut” after all.

Last week, Tito Ortiz disclosed that he had taken a “Big, Big, Big Pay Cut” in order to stay longer in the UFC and have a chance to finish Ryan Bader at UFC 132. However, after the Nevada State Athletic Commission released the full list of the UFC 132 salaries, it has been revealed that Tito Ortiz had somehow tricked us all. Based on the said figures, he received a much larger purse compared from what he got during his previous fights.

At the UFC event last Saturday, Tito Ortiz took home $450,000 fee, excluding the additional $75,000 which UFC gave him for “Submission of the Night”. During his UFC 121 loss to Matt Hammil and UFC 106 loss to Forrest Griffin, he only received $250,000. Well, it seems that this is not a “Big, Big, Big Pay Cut”, isn’t it?

What Lies Ahead of Chael Sonnen?

Written on May 20, 2011 by Markham Mencken

From one case to another, Chael Sonnen's future is now in doubt after the CSAC indefinitely upholds his suspension.

Last Wednesday, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) voted 4-1 to uphold an indefinite suspension for the UFC middleweight fighter, Chael Sonnen. The decision now makes it impossible for the fighter to coach at the 14th season of The Ultimate Fighter, opposite Michael Bisping.

Last April 19, the CSAC announced that Chael Sonnen was indefinitely suspended for two violations of the California Code of Regulations, Title 4, Section 390. The UFC middleweight talent was deemed to have violated section 390 by making untruthful statements under oath at a December 2 hearing, and for pleading guilty to a money laundering charge in Oregon on April 8. Last Wednesday’s hearing focused on Chael Sonnen’s guilty plea for money laundering, a month after his six month suspension was lifted. In addition to this, the commission also paid attention to the fighter’s claim about his alleged conversations with Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) Executive Officer, Keith Kizer.
