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?
