The California State Athletic Commission has released the official fighter payroll for “Strikeforce: Evolution”, which took place at the HP Pavilion on Dec. 19 in San Jose.
The king of the cage, the man taking home the most money for the night, despite being KTFO by Scott Smith was Cung Le. A sweet $150,000 paycheck should help ease Cung’s pain of suffering his first professional defeat.
On the other end of the spectrum was Daisuke Nakamura. This Japanese Pride and Dream veteran received only $200* (yes – two hundred dollars) for his unanimous decision loss to Justin Wilcox in their preliminary card bout.
