MMAmania.com (www.mmamania.com) has received the fighter payouts for UFC 91: "Couture vs. Lesnar" from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) for the monster pay-per-view (PPV) event held on November 15 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

And, as we reported before the show even started, Brock Lesnar was the big winner of the evening in more ways than one, pocketing a $450,000 base salary and prying the heavyweight title from Randy Couture's grip with a second round technical knockout.

"The Natural" will of course went home with more than just bumps and bruises -- he now has an additional cool quarter million in his bank account, which could will more than likely help soften the blow of losing his belt ... a little.

Gabriel Gonzaga also cashed in, earning $110,000 for his lighting fast destruction of Josh Hendricks.
