Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other "locker room" or special bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. They also do not include portions of the pay-per-view revenue that some top-level fighters receive.
For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $40,000 TUF 14 Finale bonuses to Dodson ("KO of the Night"), Brandao ("Submission of the Night" and "Fight of the Night") and Bermudez ("Fight of the Night").
In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.

That twitter quote isn't the exact quote he got fired over. He deleted the original and reposted that one. Apparently it comes from "It's always sunny in Philadelphia" but I haven't rewatched the episode to check (which is one of the best shows ever BTW).
Basically IMO it's retarded to fire him over that and this is one of the few times that I think Dana is acting like a complete cock. There is an interview with Helwani where he says at the start of it that he calls all the guys when they do this sort of stupid shit to get their side of the story (ie/ Forrest re: rape comments and Rashad re: rape comments). But then 5 minutes later says he never called or talked to Miguel about it, he had his people do it and word back was that, "it was a joke". Apparently that was the length and breadth of the explanation which sounds like complete bullshit to me.
