UFC 213 Final Purses: Alistair Overeem Hits $800,000 Confirmed Pay

UFC 213 went ahead last night without its main event bantamweight title bout between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko

Nunes pulled out at the 11th hour, which led to the interim middleweight title fight between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker being promoted to the main event slot.

There were clear winners and losers on the night, but in terms of take home pay, Alistair Overeem leads the charts with a whopping $800,000 for his controversial victory over Fabricio Werdum in the night’s co-feature fight.
