UFC Hall of Famer and former two-division champion B.J. Penn led the disclosed payroll for UFC Fight Night 112, earning $150,000 for his majority decision loss to Dennis Siver. The Oklahoma State Athletic Commission on Tuesday released the event’s salary information, which was first reported by MMA Junkie.
Fighting for second time this year, Penn suffered a back-and-forth decision loss to Siver on UFC Fight Night 112’s main card, sinking the living legend to a 1-7-1 record since 2010. Siver, a veteran of the UFC featherweight division, earned $78,000 in victory.
UFC Fight Night 112 took place June 25 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The night’s main card aired live on FOX Sports 1.
Aside from Penn, three other fighters on the card hit the six-figure mark in earnings. Longtime UFC middleweight Tim Boetsch cashed $134,000 for his second-round knockout win over former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks ($100,000), and fellow UFC veteran Clay Guida earned $110,000 for his decision victory over Erik Koch on the night’s preliminary card.
In addition to their commission-reported salaries, Kevin Lee, Boetsch, Dominick Reyes, and Jeremy Kimball also took home $50,000 fight night bonuses for their performances.
