    March Badness salaries: Roy Jones Jr. and Bobby Lashley top earners

    by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Mar 23, 2009 at 5:50 pm ET
    [​IMG]Boxing headliner Roy Jones Jr. and MMA fighter Bobby Lashley were the top earners at this past weekend's "March Badness" event, which took place March 21 at the Pensacola Civic Center in Pensacola, Fla.

    Jones, whose Square Ring Promotions also promoted the hybrid boxing/MMA event event, will take home two-thirds of all net profits received from the event. Lashley, meanwhile, earned $40,000 and will also get a piece of the PPV revenue.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today requested and received the official paydays from the State of Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

    The total disclosed payroll for the event (not counting Jones' share) was $217,000.

    Jones defeated Omar Sheik via fifth-round TKO in the night's boxing headliner. The State of Florida has not yet released official gate and attendance numbers – and the PPV numbers aren't released publicly – so it's unlikely Jones' official exact payday will be known.

    Jones' opponent, Sheik, earned the night's second-highest payday with $50,000.

    Meanwhile, Lashley, a former WWE star and up-and-coming MMA fighter, scored a lackluster unanimous decision over Jason Guida, who was a late replacement for Ken Shamrock. Despite the performance, Lashley was the top MMA earner for the night. Guida, meanwhile, earned $15,000 in defeat.

    In the night's MMA main event, former top UFC heavyweight contender Jeff Moson defeated Roy Nelson via a controversial unanimous decision. The decision was met with criticism from those in attendance. Luckily, according to the DBPR paperwork, Nelson wouldn't have received a win bonus anyway. However, the victory earned Monson $25,000, $10,000 of which came in the form of a win bonus.

    The full payouts included:

    Jeff Monson: $25,000 (win bonus was $10,000)

    Judges were must have been drunk cuz Monson clearly lost his fight. Same with one of the boxing matches, Robert DaLuz won his fight too only to lose to the guy who hailed from Florida.
