UFC 141 Payouts Total $1.37 Million With Lesnar & Overeem Taking Bulk Of Money

The Neveda State Athletic Commission released the fighter salaries for Friday night’s UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem event, revealing the event payroll at $1,369,714.28 for the Las Vegas event.

Taking home the bulk of the money were headliners Alistair Overeem ($385,714.28) and Brock Lesnar ($400,000), while third spot went to prelim fighter Dong Hyun Kim ($82,000).

Despite Overeem earning $385,714.28, he won’t see a penny of it right now as his salary is being held in escrow by the Nevada District Court. This occurred after the Dutch fighters former management company asked the court to hold the funds over money they say is owed to them by Overeem.

One bout was scrapped from the card as welterweight Matt Riddle was forced to pull out of his prelim fight versus Luis Ramos due to illness. Despite the match not taking place, UFC officials said each fighter would take home their “show” money as well as their win bonuses. Riddle is expected to receive $30,000 while Ramos is expected to take $12,000.

UFC 141 took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Dec. 30, 2011.

The full payroll for UFC 141 is as follows:

Alistair Overeem: $385,714.28 (includes $121,428.57 win bonus) def. Brock Lesnar: $400,000
