It's nice to see Gina walk away with the biggest purse. I honestly believe that Gegard's salary is a mistake... he only got 2 grand to fight Babalu?

Wow, if that mousasi salary is accurate then he is being jerked around and needs to seek greener pastures. Even the undercard guys in the ufc make more then that. This has to be some kind of mistake.

wow mousasi's getting jewed HARRDD, $2,000? i make that in 3 weeks

stevy1222 08-18-2009 05:07 PM

i think he got paid so low because it was his first fight in america. but thats just my thought.

That is possible, but he still got FD even if that is the case. Im starting to dislike strikeforce. I really hope there has been some mistake with his reported pay.

M-1 Global: Where $2,000 salaries for top 10 fighters happens.

i don't see a reason to dislike strikeforce. their commentaders aren'tthe best but they do put on good events

No way he only got 2000, I think this is kinda like when Tim got paid more than Fedor and M-1 paid the rest of Fedors salary. M-1 probably paid GayHard the rest of his salary, no way he only made 2 grand. Thats pennies.

If Mousasi didn't get some huge bonus via his contract, I will punch someone right in the chesticles.

The 2 grand is made low for tax purposes. Holland's tax is like 50% or some big godamn number. I'm speculating the real amt he's payed is under the table with M-1. Much like someone said here earlier , on the tim/fedor fight. Tim made 800k , whereas Fedor only showed he was payed 300k. It was speculated then that M-1 payed Fedor the rest of his money the moment he took his foot of the plane heading to Russia. It was also been said that he made around 1.5m for that fight. He just doesnt take full payment for tax purposes.
