Alistair Overeem has been on the wrong end of a pair of bad knockouts in 2013. But at least he's been well-paid for them.
The Massachusetts State Athletic Commission released salaries for the Aug. 17 UFC Fight Night event at Boston's TD Garden.
Overeem, who suffered a memorable first-round head-kick knockout loss to Travis Browne in the heavyweight co-feature bout, was the card's highest-paid fighter, earning a flat $285,714.29.
Browne, in his winning effort, made $48,000, including a $24,000 win bonus.
Aside from Overeem, two other fighters made six figures, both in the main event: Chael Sonnen earned a flat $100,000 fee for his first-round submission of Mauricio Rua, who took home $175,000.
Total disclosed payroll for the event was just over $1.3 million. The event drew a live attendance of 12,539 and a gate of $1.53 million.
