The main event competitors Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero earned $350,000 each.  Whittaker did not draw a win bonus although both drew the Fight of the Night bonus.  Thus, each actually made $400,000 notwithstanding the Reebok pay.

Payout Perspective:

The $800,000 for Overeem is on par with his salary as he earned $750,000 in May for his KO of Mark Hunt.  Werdum’s $275,000 and Travis Browne’s $125,000 shows you that the Heavyweight division is still the place to be if you want to fight.
