community news, UFC Fight Night 112 payouts and salaries: BJ Penn banks $150k for Oklahoma loss

It wasn’t a good night for BJ Penn in Oklahoma City, but that didn’t stop the former champion from making bank off his loss.

The Oklahoma Athletic Commission has just released fighter pay numbers for UFC Fight Night 112 and while BJ Penn certainly isn’t the fighter he used to be, he still gets paid pretty well. The former welterweight and lightweight champion cashed $150,000 in his three round decision loss to Dennis Siver, who made $78,000 for his effort.

Considering Penn vs Siver was the opening fight on a Sunday FOX Sports Fight Night card, that’s a decent chunk of cash … one we have to wonder whether the UFC will keep paying if BJ remains as uncompetitive as he was over his last two bouts.

Here’s how the rest of the purses on the card shook out (thanks to MMA Fighting):
