According to figures released by the California State Athletic Commission, Brock Lesnar was paid $400,000 for his UFC 121 performance this past Saturday night in Anaheim.
His opponent, Cain Velasquez, was paid $100,000 with a $100,000 bonus for his victory, which came by way of technical knockout in the first round.
Lesnar’s pay obviously does not include the many sponsors who he benefitted financially for the fight, nor does it include his lucrative back-end pay-per view percentage bonus. With the early projections having UFC 121 at the top three of their all-time pay-per views, you can imagine that Lesnar earned a decent seven-figure amount from that alone.
