    Kennedy and Gracie both make a lot more than I thought they did. On the flip side, I always find it pretty ridiculous how little some champions are paid in comparison to other fighters.

    It's telling just by the payroll how much Strikeforce cared to make matchups with their marquee fighters even. Quite fitting on the last card.

    Barnett made more than Cormier? Wow if I was Cormier I'd fire my manager, that's just bullshit. And I say that as a solid Josh Barnett fan. That guy should have gotten the top payday, after all isn't he the the last "strikeforce HW champion" I mean WTF? Definitely not a lot of love for Cormier. But hey then again being able to talk shit and market puts extra zeros on your check I guess....

    Those pay-outs are about as one sided as the fights were.
    Sorry Fedor, but Dan Henderson is the G.O.A.T.
