Brock Lesnar set to make $400,000 tonight for UFC 141 headliner

In an interesting move the Nevada State Athletic Commission has released the salaries for UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem hours before the event is set to begin in Las Vegas. Typically similar figures are released after a show takes place.

As expected, topping the list is Brock Lesnar who will earn $400,000 win or lose for his main event match-up with Alistair Overeem. Comparably, Overeem stands to earn $264,285.71 as base salary with another $121,428.57 headed his way if he comes away with the victory. For those of you who are not math majors at home that totals $385,714 and change.

The only other fighter with a potential bonus-free, six-figure payday headed his way is Jon Fitch who will get $60,000 to show and another $60k to win.
