Alistair Overeem

UFC Beijing salaries revealed as Alistair Overeem tops the list

UFC Beijing went down early yesterday morning in North America. For those who either stayed up or woke up early, they were treated to a great card. In the main event, Francis Ngannou took on Curtis Blaydes while Alistair Overeem was hoping to get back on track in the co-main event.

In the end, Ngannou looked like the Ngannou of old and knocked out Blaydes in just 45 seconds of the first round. Also, Overeem finally got back to his winning ways in which he defeated Sergey Pavlovich by TKO in the first round. It was a great night for Ngannou and Overeem, and making it even better is the fact they were the two highest-earning fighters on the card.  Overeem took home a whopping $860,000 while Ngannou took home a nice $255,00 for his quick work of Blaydes.
