After every UFC event, we get to see how much each fighter has made from the bout. I don't know about you Addicts, but to sit down and add together the purses of EVERY UFC fighter since UFC 46 (the event that athletic comissions started releasing the information) requires more time then i'm willing to sacrifice.

Luckily for you, the guys over at MMAManifesto.com have taken on the mammoth challenge. The dedicated group have added together every fight purse and every 'of the night' bonus to calculate exactly how much every fighter has taken home, and there are some real suprises.
