Alistair Overeem may not have been in the main event, but after UFC 213, he's officially taking home more than both headliners combined.
Monday, the Nevada Athletic Commission provided Sherdog.com a list of reported payouts for this past Saturday's UFC 213 card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Overeem led all of the disclosed earners, taking home a flat $800,000 purse with no win bonus for his majority decision win over Fabricio Werdum in their rubber match. The former UFC champion Werdum made $275,000.
Both of the card's headliners, Robert Whitaker and Yoel Romero, made $350,000. Whittaker, who received no win bonus, won the UFC interim middleweight title in the main event via unanimous decision. Both men also took home $50,000 aside from the official NAC ledger, winning “Fight of the Night” bonuses on Saturday evening.
Other notable payouts include former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis ($180K), Travis Browne ($120K) and Jim Miller ($71K).
Note: The disclosed purses reported by state athletic commissions do not include any performance-based or discretionary bonuses that may be awarded to a fighter by the promotion. Additionally, the reported figures do not reflect any deductions made by the commission for taxes, insurance, etc., and do not include any sponsorship money that a fighter may acquire for their performance.
