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.

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.

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.

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.
