Salary Report: Strikeforce: Marquardt vs. Saffiedine | MMA NEWS


It’s over, the Strikeforce promotion was bought, plundered and forced to shut down after a ZUFFA owned company purchased the fight promotion nearly two-years ago.

The promotions last stand was put up on Showtime last Saturday and the guys who partook in the evenings festivities took home a pretty decent salary.

Josh Barnett topped the evenings earners with a nice round quarter-million dollars and fellow heavyweight Daniel Cormier took home the second highest figure with $120k.
