Lesnar’s opponent, Mark Hunt, earned the second-highest pay at $700,000 for his loss to Lesnar.

Anderson Silva, who took the place of co-headliner Jon Jones on two days notice, earned $600,000. Silva’s opponent, Daniel Cormier, and main-eventer Miesha Tate earned $500,000 each.

Total payroll was nearly $7.0 million, the largest disclosed payroll for a UFC event in company history.
