Welterweight veteran Aaron Simpson led the disclosed payroll for UFC on FUEL 4, pocketing $46,000 for his main event victory over Kenny Robertson ($8,000), according to figures released by the California State Athletic Commission.

Middleweight headliners Chris Weidman and Mark Munoz were not far behind, as Weidman took home a purse of $44,000 for his stunning second-round TKO of Munoz, who collected $42,000 in the loss.

Other notable salaries include Rafael dos Anjos, Raphael Assuncao, and James Te Huna. Dos Anjos and Assuncao banked $40,000 and $34,000, respectively, for their undercard wins, while Te Huna earned $28,000 for his co-main event victory over Joey Beltran ($15,000).

UFC on FUEL 4 took place on July 11, 2012 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The entire UFC on FUEL 4 payroll can be seen below, however these figures do not represent a fighter's total earnings, as sponsorship money and discretionary post-fight bonuses are not publicly disclosed.

Additionally, Weidman, Te Huna, Joey Beltran, and Alex Caceres took home an extra $40,000 in post-fight bonuses for their work.
