If for some reason, you needed further evidence of just how huge of a star Brock Lesnar is, well, the Nevada Commission has provided some for you.

The commission has released the fighter payouts for UFC 200, and as reported recently, Lesnar collected a whopping $2.5 million dollars. The figure, remember, does not include any pay-per-view money the WWE star may have earned as well.

The previous record holder, for a disclosed purse, was Conor McGregor at $1,000,000.

Lesnar worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Mark Hunt on Saturday. The latter was paid $700 K for the fight.

So, ya, UFC 200 was quite the good night for Mr. Lesnar. Some of the other top earners from the card included Daniel Cormier ($500,000), Anderson Silva ($600,000), Miesha Tate ($500,000), and Jose Aldo ($500,000).

The July 9th event took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
