By Tristen Critchfield Jun 27, 2017

B.J. Penn suffered his fifth consecutive defeat in the Octagon on Sunday night, but he was compensated handsomely for his efforts.

Penn earned an event-high $150,000 for his unanimous decision loss to Dennis Siver ($78,000) in a featured featherweight bout at UFC Fight Night 112 at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla. The Oklahoma State Athletic Commission recently released salary information from the event.

UFC Fight Night 112 saw Kevin Lee earn a controversial submission victory over Michael Chiesa in the evening’s main event when Lee applied a rear-naked choke and referee Mario Yamasaki halted the lightweight contest before Chiesa could tap or be rendered unconscious. Lee earned $88,000 in victory, while Chiesa pocketed $36,000 in defeat.

Other notable earners included Tim Boetsch, who garnered $134,000 for a second-round stoppage of ex-welterweight champ Johny Hendricks ($100,000) and Clay Guida, who collected $100,000 for a unanimous verdict against Erik Koch ($24,000).
