UFC middleweight submission wizard, Demian Maia topped the salary list for The TUF 12 Finale, picking up a whopping $80,000 for his three round unanimous decision win over TUF 3 winner, Kendall Grove this past weekend in Las Vegas, NV. Other big payouts included Stephan Bonnar – $62,000, Leonard Garcia – $32,000, Kendall Grove – $28,000 and Rick Story – $26,000. TUF 12 winner, Jonathan Brookins earned $16,000.

Along with his cool $16,000, Jonathan Brookins was informed that he could be out of action for up to six months after the Nevada State Athletic Commission insisted he had his left foot x-rayed and cleared by an orthopedic doctor. The other major suspension included Ian Loveland who must have an x-ray carried out on his finger and also cleared by an orthopedic doctor following his unanimous decision win over Tyler Toner. Fredson Paixao got away with just three months away from the cage following his brutal flying knee knockout at the hands of Pablo Garza.
