Payout Perspective:

Usually the salaries are not disclosed until after the card but it appears that the salaries were released as a result of Golden Glory’s legal team obtaining an order to garnish the wages of Overeem due to the ongoing litigation between Overeem and his former management team.

Via MMA Junkie:

The judgement applies to 30 percent of Overeem’s show and win purses, any performance bonuses he may receive, and any proceeds he may receive from the pay-per-view event per his UFC contract.

The $400,000 is Lesnar’s standard salary for every UFC fight (100, 121, 116) since UFC 91 when he received $450K (but that included a $200K win bonus). He was paid $250K per show prior to his raise to $400K at UFC 100.

    Usually, how much does a fighter fighting in a Maincard earns with sponsors?
