    id like to see brett rogers and diaz making more dough.

    overall looks like strikeforce is playing it smart and not overextending themselves by overpaying second/third tier fighters.

    i guess he's the biggest pull seeing how he's the local and whatnot, but still...

    i take it that doesn't include "female" Cyborg's paycut for not making weight

    Every payout thread ever is basically a carbon copy.


    And I reckon Diaz should have been paid more.

    Timmy should be taking notes, 20 grand is an acceptable ammount to get your ass kicked, 800 + herpes is not.
