CM Punk lost in his UFC debut in lopsided fashion, but he's not walking away without a lot of money in his pocket.

The former WWE superstar earned a disclosed $500,000 for his fight with Mickey Gall on Saturday night where he fell by rear naked choke at just 2min 14sec into the opening round.

The Ohio Athletic Commission revealed the full salaries for UFC 203 on Monday, with Punk's payout equating to $3731 per second on salary alone.

Punk's disclosed pay will also likely be increased with a back end salary based on the total pay-per-view sales that will be earned from UFC 203.

Gall, who was making his second appearance in the UFC with his win over Punk, earned $30,000 for his victory including $15,000 to show and another $15,000 for the win.

UFC heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem actually topped the payroll with an $800,000 salary for his loss in the main event against champion Stipe Miocic. With a win, Overeem would have earned another $200,000 to give him a million dollar salary for the fight.
