Some nice paydays on here. Cormier made bank. Gracie, Sergei, and Jeff all got a nice chunk of change as well.

Good for Sergei - maybe he can afford some grappling lessons now.

Can't believe they are paying 4 guys on this card over 100k and 9 guys over 50k. Most UFC cards don't report that many guys making good bank. I'm sure they don't get the same bonuses, but still a lot for Strikeforce to pay out without PPV revenue (Showtime deal can't be THAT big, can it?).

Strikeforce grossly over-paying guys, big shocker.

That said, I still have to shake my head at the fact that Roger Gracie and King Mo made a combined $165,000. That's not right.

Those are some crazy paydays. Good on the fighters for getting that dough, but that can't be sustainable
