Rashad Evans was the top earner of a star-studded UFC 156 field, taking home $300,000 in a losing effort against Antonio Rogerio Nogueira ($174,000) in Saturday’s co-main event.

Alistair Overeem was also rewarded handsomely in defeat, as the former Strikeforce heavyweight ruler garnered $285,714 in a third-round knockout loss to Antonio Silva ($70,000). The Nevada Athletic Commission released the salary figures on Monday.

UFC 156 took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and was headlined by a featherweight title clash between reigning champion Jose Aldo ($240,000) and former 155-pound king Frankie Edgar ($120,000). Aldo survived a late charge by “The Answer” to capture a unanimous verdict, his fourth successful title defense in the Octagon.

Also on the main card, Demain Maiaj ($120,000) outgrappled Jon Fitch ($66,000) to secure his third win since dropping to welterweight, while Joseph Benavidez ($60,000) outpointed Ian McCall ($9,000) in a battle of flyweight contenders.

Note: The disclosed purses reported by state athletic commissions do not include any performance-based or discretionary bonuses that may be awarded to a fighter by the promotion. Additionally, the reported figures do not reflect any deductions made by the commission for taxes, insurance, etc., and do not include any sponsorship money that a fighter may acquire for their performance.
