If you take a look at the World Series of Fighting 9 salaries, you'll notice that welterweight Josh Burkman did not receive a win bonus for his 1st round KO of Tyler Stinson. Instead, he was given $25,000 to show, and was the only winning fighter on the card without any win bonus. Today, Burkman stated on Twitter that he wants to head somewhere else, and has asked for WSOF to cut him loose:
