Last night Bellator held arguably their biggest event ever, Bellator 131, which featured a main-event bout between Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar.

Today the salaries for the event were disclosed by the CSAC to Sherdog, and unsurprisingly Tito Ortiz topped the $632,600 disclosed payroll. Interestingly however, according to MMAJunkie, Ortiz purse was not doubled as a result of his win over Stephan Bonnar, however if Bonnar had won, his purse would have double with a win bonus.
