    MMAWeekly has obtained the fighter salary information from the California State Athletic Commission for “Strikeforce at the Mansion 2” featuring Kazuo Misaki vs. Joe Riggs, which took place on Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners' bonuses.

    Although mixed martial arts fighters do not have collective bargaining or a union, the fighters' salaries are still public record, just as with every other major sport in the United States. Any undisclosed bonuses that a promoter also pays its fighters, but does not disclose to the athletic commissions (specifically, fight of the night bonuses, etc.), are not included in the figures below.

    In the listings below, "Main Event Fighters" are defined as fighters who compete in the main event of a show. "Main Card Fighters" are defined as fighters whose fights appear on the main card, but not in the main event. "Preliminary Card Fighters" are defined as fighters whose matches take place before the live broadcast goes on the air, regardless of whether or not those matches end up airing on the TV or Internet broadcast.


    MAIN EVENT FIGHTERS

    Kazuo Misaki ($1,400/win bonus was undisclosed) def. Joe Riggs ($20,000)


    MAIN CARD FIGHTERS

    – Josh Thomson ($40,000/win bonus was $20,000) def. Ashe Bowman ($2,000)

    – Terry Martin ($10,000) def. Cory Devela ($10,000)

    Mitsuhiro Ishida ($1,400/win bonus was undisclosed) def. Justin Wilcox ($5,000)

    – Trevor Prangley ($40,000) def. Anthony Ruiz ($6,000)


    PRELIMINARY CARD FIGHTERS

    – Luke Stewart ($8,000) def. Jesse Juarez ($2,000)

    – Eric Lawson ($6,000/win bonus was $500) def. Kenneth Seagrist ($2,000)

    – Brandon Magana ($2,000) def. Brandon Thatch ($2,000)

    – Jesse Gillespie ($2,000/win bonus was $1,000) def. Dave Martin ($1,000)


    STRIKEFORCE AT THE MANSION 2 DISCLOSED FIGHTER PAYROLL: $159,300

    since its the two japs on the card I am willing to bet it is either a tax or Visa issue/loophole.

    Or since they are both from Dream - it's some sort of deal with them.

    Not like two top 5 in the world fighters fight for less than Vulgar makes.
