One thing's certain: Brock Lesnar and fellow headliner Alistair Overeem will be the top earners at tonight's UFC 141 event.

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer today emailed the list of officially disclosed paydays to MMAjunkie.com.

Lesnar makes a flat $400,000 for the event. Overeem, meanwhile, earns a base pay of $264,285.71 and an additional $121,428.57 as a "win bonus" if victorious.

i almost forgot about "The Janitor" being on this card. most of the earnings are not surprising. we all knew lesnar gets a butt load of money for fighting.

just realized that the only way for overeem to earn more than lesnar is to get SOTN or KOTN, then hed earn something like 450,000 assuming its would be a $70,000 bonus.

lol at those dollar amounts for overeem. Must be converted from a round number in another currency like kroner or whatever his country uses.

I wondered the same thing and found this:

Apparently Riddle got sick so the fight was called off, but they both got paid.
