Now with UFC 203 in the books, the salaries from Saturday night’s fights are in, and Overeem leads the pack for the largest payout of the night.

The Dutch striker took home $800,000 in disclosed pay in a losing effort to Stipe Miocic, who himself took home $600,000 in his first title defense since winning the belt from Fabricio Werdum at UFC 198.

CM Punk, who made his UFC and MMA debut on the card, took home $500,000 in a loss to Mickey Gall, who made $30,000 for his submission victory over the former WWE star.
