01 Overeem vs Lesnar UFC 141_9649The Massachusetts State Athletic Commission on Tuesday released the UFC Fight Night 26: Shogun vs. Sonnen fighter salaries to MMAWeekly.com.

UFC light heavyweight Chael Sonnen submitted for UFC and Pride champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in the night’s main event, but it was Alistair Overeem, in a loss, that topped the disclosed fighter payroll.

UFC Fight Night 26 took place Saturday, Aug. 17, at the TD Garden in Boston.

The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.

Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters’ salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, pay-per-view bonuses, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.
