Junior dos Santos was the biggest earner at UFC on Fox 13, taking home a reported $260,000 for his victory over Stipe Miocic ($30,000) in the evening’s main event on Dec. 13.

The Arizona MMA and Boxing Commission recently released salary information from the event to MMAFighting.com. UFC on Fox 13 took place at US Airways Center in Phoenix and also saw Rafael dos Anjos garner $86,000 for his dominant triumph over Nate Diaz ($16,000) in the co-main event.

Both Dos Anjos’ and Diaz’s paydays reflect the $4,000 of Diaz’s purse that was given to dos Anjos when the Stockton, Calif., native was fined for missing weight. Diaz, a 20-time Octagon veteran, had not competed in more than a year prior to facing dos Anjos.

Alistair Overeem was the card’s other high earner, as he pocketed $150,000 for his first-round stoppage of Stefan Struve ($40,000) in a featured heavyweight bout.

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.
