Alistair Overeem Paid Full UFC 141 Salary for Win Over Brock Lesnar

Alistair Overeem has been paid his full UFC 141 salary of more than $385,000 for his first-round knockout of Brock Lesnar in the main event of UFC 141 this past Friday in Las Vegas after a judge’s order to hold his earnings wasn’t completed.

Overeem’s former management, Golden Glory, filed a lawsuit against the heavyweight contender one day before UFC 141 alleging a breach of contract and a judge ordered on the morning of the event that Overeem’s purse be held until the dispute was resolved, but a $200,000 bond required to execute the order was never posted.

Overeem scored $385,714.28 for the win, including a $121,428.57 win bonus, and also earned $2 for every pay-per-view buy over $500,000 total revenue as well as a $1 million signing bonus paid over his first three fights with the UFC.
